updates is inactive for Branched releases, but that's because there's no
need for it; as there's no frozen 'master' tree, packages simply go
straight from updates-testing in the main 'release' repo (which I tend
to refer to as dist-f15, although technically that's just a koji tag).
So for final releases there's three repos:


'release' is frozen and never changes; updates go to updates-testing
first and updates when they're stable.

For Branched releases there are only two active repos:


updates go into updates-testing first and then straight to 'release'
when they're approved. There's no need for a third place.
