I did not say that it is wrong, but I asked whether he really wants to
use packages out of the testing branch. As our discussion about the
qtparted package from testing showed me, that those package might be no
recommend. At least if the user is not experienced and just copied his
yum.conf and does not know what all implies.

Same as above. Additional, I normally do not like to get
testing/unstable packages on my working system. And if I decide to get
one of these packages I am very selective and do not take it via a
normal update run but install it by hand.

I just guessed the original poster did not know about what he really set
up. So I asked him.

Ok, as I do not use livna.org package I did not know that.
