That is the one reason where I do direct pushes.

Most of my tiny php packages are also never tested (at least not with
comments on bodhi), so the difference between a direct push and
testing doesn't really exist. But I don't mind having them two weeks
in testing anyway. Sometimes it is annoying because the next version
shows up while the previous one is not in stable yet.

Will there be a minimum number of days a package has to stay in testing?
