Testing test releases: do not update (was: yum.conf that works)

I would think the reason to have a test release is to have a well
defined point in development time to test against. If you point your
package resolvers to development/rawhide, then that's what you will be
testing instead.

E.g. if you want to have FC2test1 installed and tested, file bug
reports etc., then do not update. Or if you do, probably you should
not file bugs against FC2test1 anymore (but FC devel), as the set of
bugs will already be different.

All from my humble understanding of the current release
process/policy, Red Hatters feel free to shoot and correct me ;)
