Oh cool :)

How about we take the suggestion a little bit further, create an
[arch-testing] mailing list, where we can send a mail, so that people
who use a package, can know it's in testing.

Currently there's no notification if something goes into testing, so
it nearly always goes in without people knowing. If people knew, then
they'd be able to selectively take things from testing, pacman -S
testing/package and give us feedback.

If not, we could at least extend that wiki page to more than drivers.
