I actually promised to do this a while ago. So having time now here at
LinuxTag I did finaly write up what I had in mind. The proposal is
here "http://wiki.centos.org/QaWiki/TestingRepo". It is probably only
accessable for people in the QA team or people having admin rights.
But I think for the discussion about the proposal itself this should
be ok. If not let me know and I move it.

I've also made a list in that proposal about what to do with the
current pacakges in the testing repo.

Hoping the problem magically goes away by ignoring it is the
"microsoft approach to programming" and should never be allowed.
