Yeah, I know. Here at least, we barely have the resources to test the
updates that have made it to the main updates repo. I wish we had more time,
but generally we only look at things in updates-testing if they seem
particularly interesting for some already-known reason.

It might help if packages put in updates-testing were accompanied by posts
to the announce list. (I know they do sometimes get messages here or on the
test list.)
