The point you are missing is that FC2test2 will just be another snapshot
from FC devel.  If everyone is running FC2test1 and not updating then
FC2test2 will come out basically untested.  This is not what we want.

My experience from the Severn beta says that "test" releases are expected
to be updated from Rawhide (devel) so that:

- Everyone doesn't keep reporting bugs that have been fixed
- Everyone can test what will become Test2
