I fully agree with not pushing things to stable unless they go towards
stabilising the beta but can we please resume pushes to testing. At
the moment there has been no pushes to testing and not having this for
another week massively eats into the ability of people to test other
not so critical parts of the upcoming release. I'm aware of at least
the final gnome and sugar releases that are awaiting in the wings.
