Even in that case they are meant to go to updates, and in that case
should be, at some point < rawhide when rawhide becomes the next

Having timeouts for pushing from testing to updates has been discussed
in the past, if I recall well, and I think that auto-pushing was not
accepted. However, and if I recall well, there could be some auto-pushing 
after a delay when there is enough positive 'karma' for a package (2 people 
approving the update if I recall well).
