Re: Why is only the latest unstable package considered for testing?

To the best of my knowledge there are no autobuilders for testing.
The autobuilders use unstable.  Therefore in order to accomplish what
you suggest one would need to manually build on all of the Debian
supported architectures using testing or stable and then upload the
binary builds for all architectures.  And there may be other gotchas
too.
