Mike, your crusade to annoy the release team may be fun for you, but
it's getting tedious for the rest of us. Please give it a rest.
If you're so keen on using your own version of testing as your own
special distribution, then all the packages and tools are available to
allow you to maintain it for yourself. We've made it abundantly clear
over the years why our version of testing exists and how it's going to
be managed. End of story.
