Correct the testing, forcing things to go into an updates-testing queue before 
going out to the rest of the world.  Announcement about what has changed and 
what should be tested, the ability to pull something from -testing before it 
hits the wide world.  Ralf's statement is that we shouldn't bother, and we 
should just use our end users for our testing purposes.

It doesn't, it has to do with where the topic has drifted, the use of an 
update tool to issue updates to released Fedoras.
