Anybody feel free to kick in and correct me if i'm wrong here, but...
I believe it's been mentioned on this list somewhere before, that
updates-testing is probably not getting the attention (it should?) from
a wide variety of testers. My feeling is that updates-testing is
*mostly* being used by people who have a bugzilla for productX and needs
to test if their bug has gone away and stuff like this.
This may or may not be intentional (or even true), but that's what I
seem to recall from previous discussions.
If it had been in updates-testing, would you have taken the time to
seriously and thoroughly testing it?
If yes, then it's too bad it didn't go to updates-testing, if not it
wouldn't have helped much. With a limited number of people using
updates-testing, some weird bug was probably going to make it through
Anyway, hope this helps in some way.
