... and confused many users, since (1) no document explained the
philosophy behind a classification into stable/testing/unstable, (2) other
repositories use a different classification, (3) hardly any user who, runs
into problems with packages from "testing" or "unstable", would report a
bug, (4) repository mixing becomes even funnier, (5) inter-repository
dependencies (e.g. "livna") get more funny, too, (6) example yum config
files apparently suggested to enable all repositories by default, and (7)
an upgrade path from half-baked packages/software often is impracticable.
