I believe it is best to follow testing, since this allow those arches to start
doing the work for the whole release cycle, and in particular to help fix
arch-specific bugs in the tier-1 archive as soon as they are found.

Doing this once stable has been released will cause a (probably very long for
slower arches) undue delay in being ready for a arch-stable release, and
probably make the source changeset over tier-1 stable bigger than necessary
due to the fact that arch-specific fixes will only be fixed once tier-1 stable
has been released.
