The development tree eventually becomes another test1 snapshot... but
its not a smooth transition. Its fairer to say the development tree
becomes... something akin to the undead after a final release.  The
period between FCX final release and FCX+1test1 can be a gruesome
experience because of the large rate of change and the introduction of
highly unstable new or reworked packages.   You can not fully
appriecate the organization of the test release process until you have
tasted the ashes and dispair of what is going to happen to the tree in
the next month.

Or put another way....
The development tree has seasons... and we are about to enter the
season of nuclear desolation. Panic.
