Well I didn't think of it as overly protective when I wrote it, but
that is normally the case isnt it.

 I figured we have a small subset of packages that we maintain... and
we have a  process where stuff may sit in testing for a month but we
have no feedback on whats there. Instead I figured we could have a
process where we could see that a package was tested, by whom, and
with what and  could be considered 'stable'.

My current I-havent-had-a-good-night-sleep-in-a-week feeling is that
calling our repositories testing and stable is misleading. They are
just snapshots that are more accurately called "this-month" and
"next-month". My guess is that going further than that would require
the resources that people pay Red Hat for :).
