I don't follow you. Increased convenience just for the devs? How?All I
want is to have packages stabled ~60 days after the initial commit on
tree instead of ~5 months. If arches can't do that then I don't want to
mark that obsolete package stable at all. Whats the point?
Also I would prefer to be able to drop ancient stable packages from the
tree even if that means that there wont be any other stable version for
this package to use. I 'd prefer a working tiny stable tree
than a huge ancient one
