I agree that the ~arch ebuilds should be tested in the same
configuration in which they will end up in arch. However in this case,
the possible configurations for arch are a subset of those in ~arch, so
the testing covers those too.

I see a problem where a significant proportion of ~arch users will have
this flag enabled (which is obviously the point of
package.use.stable.mask) so the arch configurations will see fewer
testers. This issue may need to be addressed, e.g. by extending
stabilization period or disallowing package.use.stable.mask in default
or desktop profile.


Best regards,
