I do not see how this discourages maintainers. I do not know of any
package maintainer that stated that he did not want his updates tested.
This would at least encourage people that want better tested updates to
commit into testing them. The current problem is not that package
maintainers do not want their packages tested, but that updates are
delayed without any visible testing.
