There is no list, and you don't apply to it.  The intent of it 
isn't to provide people having problems with new rpms that might 
fix their problems.  The intent will be to drop new highly 
experimental rpms into an otherwise stock+updates sysetm and see 
what breaks, so it can be (hopefully) fixed, and try again on 
autorepeat until the *packaging* is safe and sane, and any major 
issues that arise are fixed.

Your request IMHO is something that would fall into the rawhide 
rpms category IMHO, however you of course will be the judge of 
what you'll install on your system.  ;o)

Again however, I am not making any people lists.  When the time 
comes, I will get some internal Red Hat people to test it, and a 
few others that have tested things in the past, etc.
