Actually, the scheme at rpm.livna.org is a revised one.

Do you have any comments on the known issues why the packages stay in
"testing"?

There are a couple of packages which cannot be moved because they
cause regression and/or break other packages in "stable".

The key point is they are free to enable these optional upgrades which
may not be as trouble-free as stuff in "stable". Those who are happy
with the last "stable" release would not like if they were forced to
install less stable releases or no mplayer at all.

for a first test release.
