I was thinking that a possible recommendation be:
- update rawhide regularly, testing yourself locally
- if any bugreports come in for an existing release, quickly build the
current, and place in testing, with a request for the reporter to test.
- Only on successful test by yourself and reporter against their
specific bug, should the build be pushed to stable.
Anyway, just some thoughts, mainly because I'm thinking of doing similar
based on cvs snapshots for audacity, at least while it continues to be
in 2+ year beta.
