Wow, really?  updates-testing is allowed to be more broken than
rawhide?  So why don't we just do all development in updates-testing,
and don't push these changes to rawhide until they pass the
updates-testing karma?  

This is not how I understand these things should work.  I think this
attitude will push even fewer people to run with updates-testing
