If the focus of the next round is the 2.6 kernel, then you can get lots of 
updates kernel tests via up2date.  Are not the test1/test2/test3 releases 
really focused on the install process?  With the release plus up2date 
process, individual packages (including the kernel) get a lot more rounds of 
testing than is implied by test release dates.
