The test directory is a starting point for installation. Rawhide 
(development used to be active to get updates during the test periods. 
The developers should be squashing bugs and development would be for the 
active progression of FC7 2B.
Development should be rather stable at this time and only contain what 
is supposed to be hapening with FC7 for test one, two and three.

Bug report sanity is a good question though. I file bugs experienced 
during the test phase against the current test release. Other people 
suggested filing the bug other than the initial install against 
development. I guess there is some logic behind both strategies.


When nothing can possibly go wrong, it will.
