Sorry, but that just shows you don't understand how updates-testing
works. Packages that go there are designed to end up in stable and
it's a short term area to stage the updates to be tested.... by
default max 7 days.

Errr..... no, you're again wrong. According to the F-22 schedule [1]
the final free is 5th May, the features have to be "feature complete"
by Alpha and given the above release is the "feature complete" release
we're already there. Sugar 0.104 is due to be stable by Feb 13th which
means we'll have it there before the beta freeze.

Please actually get your facts right about the process before spreading FUD.
