You missed the latest change in my proposition.

* Unstable is kept like it is now.
* testing scripts are not run on unstable but on
* thus uploads for testing have to be done in t-p-u and there's
  no automatic promotion from unstable to testing.
* recompile in t-p-u are done with testing (that's already the case),
  ensuring that we have good dependencies most of the time

I'm not able to determine it, I'm just able to see that the version
in unstable has gone through 2 new upstream version while testing
hasn't. I can inform him that he may want to upload the last well tested
package in testing-proposed-updates ...

Does it matter if we provide an outdated ls ?

If yes, then someone will complain.
If no, where's the problem ?
