I use updates in -testing.  And I use postgresql for development work.
So I'm a consumer of the packages you leave in -testing even though I
don't comment in bodhi.

To me, the real value of the testing repository (or lack of value) is
not whether the update ever gets auto-pushed.  It's whether showstopper
bugs get caught while still in the -testing repo before being pushed out
to -stable.

I've had a few of those caught and reported a few myself so I'm seeing
value there.
