I would say having "an" experimental repo wouldn't be as good as having
per-app repos: for me, there are apps I care about and want to test, and
others I use infrequently and couldn't contribute much to. However, if
on the other hand there was some way of marking out which packages I
wanted to pull from experimental (or updates-testing for that matter),
then well and good.
I think experimental is needed, though. Some apps really need longer
baking before getting into Fedora proper: Tbird 3 for me is an excellent
example, although probably for the maintainer one which is much more
obvious in hindsight.
The change in mission makes a huge amount of sense (being usable, if not
bug-free, has to be a top priority in my mind).
For my money, a great proposal though, thanks.
