1) There will be no wide audience, even if they have updates-testing enabled they will not automatically install the new packages let alone use it, the only way to get a wide audience is to put it in updates and in comps, so that people can install it through "add/remove software". For the majority of users, if it isn't in comps it doesn't exist, since updates-testing has no comps *, the package doesn't exist and thus will not get tested.That's just a simple matter of using the comps-f7.xml comps file when generating repodata for the Fedora 7 updates. Then suddenly you have entries in add/remove software for things in updates-testing.* and if it will, that means yet more work to get a package outYou should be adding the package to comps if it makes sense to have it in comps anyway, for each platform you'll build it for.
So lets say I put blobAndConquer, a new package which I've submitted through bodhi today in comps-f7.xml.in, and that comps gets rebuild from this. Then yes, people with updates-testing enabled will be able to install it, but people without updates-testing enabled, will see it to and get an error that it isn't available when trying to install it. Not very pretty if you ask me.
