This is already part of the proposal for no frozen rawhide.  There will
be a rawhide-testing that proposed changes go into, managed by bodhi,
and may not ever get pushed to rawhide itself.

As to when this repo will open remains an open question.  as having it
there all the time and requiring maintainers use bodhi for rawhide
always may cause a revolt, but using it from feature freeze on may be
too late.
