I will note again that 0 karma doesn't mean that it's not been tested.
I run here with updates-testing enabled, but often only report -karma
when things break. There are just so many things in updates-testing,
that I usually don't have time or energy to +1 all of them that work.
I have reported -karma on about 4-5 things in the f12 cycle and also
actively asked others to do so, preventing these things from being
pushed, so I don't agree that updates-testing is not useful.
