Doesn't sound right. FE could push to stable always and much more quickly,
too. What was missing was a convenient interface for packagers which they
could use to decide between testing and stable or whether not to push a
build at all. It was necessary to submit special requests by email, since
by default every new build would become a test update. Packagers wanted
more control, and some even wanted no (!) delays by means of automatically
pushing to the repos.
