Close, but not quite. From what I understood the packages undergo these
checks before entering the development release (i.e. unstable), and that
without a 10 days delay. This means that unstable would be in a
constantly better shape, the release team would probably have an easier
time keeping testing close to unstable (as things are installable in
unstable) and the individual developer would pay more attention to these
things (as he does not get his packages in otherwise).

(Ah, just noticed that you did not reply to me but to Barry. Still, I
hope my answers apply.)
