xorg-x11 in Testing



I have been having hard X hangs on my dual Athlon system with an ATI Radeon 
9200 (RV280).  This has been happening with xorg-x11-6.8.1-12.FC3.21 on an 
infrequent but constant basis (and there are bugzilla reports which seem to 
describe the problem).

Then there were some comments added to the bugzilla reports saying to try the 
updates in development (rawhide) so I downloaded xorg-x11-6.8.1.903-2.src.rpm 
and built the packages for my system.  I still got the hangs and still pretty 
much infrequent but happening.

Then the Testing update xorg-x11-6.8.2-1.FC3.10test was put in Testing and 
announced on this list.  So I updated.  Oops, now I got three hangs in a 
matter of a few hours so I backed off to xorg-x11-6.8.1-12.FC3.21 and the 
hangs stopped.

I have updated the report I turned in on the problem -- 
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=145534
but also queried bugzilla for FC3 and devel problems.  This returned a very 
large number of hits ... too many to really see if there are any other "hang" 
reports.

Now this long winded message is leading to a suggestion.  I consider that that 
problems with packages in Updates should be reported with the base release 
with the updated version/release indicated so that the package maintainer 
knows what package is having the problem.  However, it seems to me that the 
packages in Testing are another matter and there is no product version 
designation for Testing whereas devel (rawhide), base+updates (e.g., fc3), 
and alpha/beta testing (e.g., fc4test1).

Suggestion:  add a product version called "testing" for bugzilla reports on 
packages in Testing.

If there is some other means of specifying this info (such as adding a keyword 
of Testing), it should be better advertised.
