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.
