I like this idea of pre-testing. It would allow to cut down the versionned dependencies caused by automatic detection and allow a quicker move to testing. The issue I see however is that a package rebuilded that way would go into testing without being tested by anyone. What if a given package fail to work when compiled with libs in testing? I agree that would be a missing versionning in the build-dep, but who would detect it? I'm afraid that such mistakes would lead to the disparition of the package from testing until its versionned build-dep comes into testing, which would be even more problematic than outdated content of testing, IMHO. Thanks, Mt.
