Don't know about CanLog, but the teTeX package in experimental got
indeed quite some testing.  I think the difference to shadow is that
hardly any user feels the urgent need to have the most recent upstream
version of shadow; they simply don't notice it.  teTeX, on the other
hand, is outdated in sarge/etch/sid, and people *really* want version

This doesn't mean we won't get RC bugs once we are in unstable (this
week!), because the testing was mainly by individual users, but not by
developers; there'll be a couple of FTBFS bugs in packages
build-depending on us.
