But, how would be the proposed process for this software?

I mean, should they also have some kind of grace period after uploading
to unstable? Would it enter stable after unstable? Or after testing? Or
would it enter stable directly without any kind of testing period? All
upstream releases would go into stable, or only those fixing non-trivial
bugs? How would we be able to remain security and stability on sarge
with this?
