Why not having a target fcX-tst? Where X can be 1,2,3,4 or course...

Put the RPMs in an extra directory (eg. fcX-extras-testing) and call it repo
extras-testing...

>From my view, development actually is something like 'testing' and I think
it's OK to have a base distribution (eg. Fc4) and a development repo... I'm
not really in the need of a 'testing' repo...

A testing repo only makes sense for older distributions (eg. fc1), where the
people normally are not able to use the devel branch of the extras, because
they depend on newer glibc or python or other packages that are system wide
used and therfor would require a more or less major upgrade of the whole
system...

My 2 cent,
