When I am not on rawhide I use updates-testing, but I don't go looking at
updates-testing packages specifically. If I notice something broken then
I am likely to note the problem somewhere (bodhi or bugzilla). So typically
I will only give negative feedback.

For cases where I have bugs open I am more likely to be pulling stuff out
of koji rather than waiting to get it through updates-testing. Even when
using rawhide I'll get stuff from koji, if there is a freeze or if I don't
want to wait a day for the update to make it to a mirror.
