I eat testing religiously.  I eat so much testing in fact, that I
can't easily sort through all the associated bug reports that I could
be testing for all the packages that I don't commonly "actively" use.
To know what is currently from testing on my system I have to run my
own yum/repoqueries with testing disabled looking for packages not
from regular updates. That's a real pain..and it still doesn't help me
figure out what I should be testing and reporting back on
specifically.  So basically I end up reporting regressions if
anything.

What I need to be more helpful is a way for my system to inform me of
the current testing packages I have installed...and the specific
things I should be testing with regard to them. I todo list of sorts.
