no, it's in testing as every package updating something in CentOS' own
package is and it will remain there forever. There are many people
that don't want the stable part of ATrpms to touch any vendor provided

The name "testing" is very misleading, but that was the infratsruture
that existed and I just abused it. When rpmrepo.org comes to life the
package will be in a better named repo instead of "testing".
