We have content in there which needs to go somewhere else before that
(like the directory server or openjdk-1.6). Tim: Have you finished
moving^W^W^Wany idea where one could put that? Otherwise I'm behind that

*Or* we need to redefine the testing.repo.

I don't really think you can. Either we need to test stuff within qa,
which will not work because of the varietey of stuff in testing (there
are packages in testing I cannot even remotely test because I haven't
the faintest idea what they are), or we need to set up "personal" repos
for testing, for example a centos-dirserv.repo, so that people who are
interested can test stuff like that *before* it goes into
centosplus/extras. But you need large exposure (possibly from within the
community of a certain application) for testing packages.
