It seem to have worked fine.  BTW, why don't we create testing2coreany
and testing2extraany scripts?  It would be be more convenient than
using db-move directely.

Probably we would want to combine all these scripts into a single one
that would take care of all arches. Maybe this would work (untested):


if [ $# -le 0 ]; then
    echo "usage: $(basename 0) <packagename> [<packagename> [<packagename ...]]"
    exit 0

for pkg in $@; do
    echo "==> Moving package '$pkg'"
    $(dirname $0)/db-move "$pkg" "testing" "core" "i686"
    $(dirname $0)/db-move "$pkg" "testing" "core" "x86_64"
    $(dirname $0)/db-move "$pkg" "testing" "core" "any"

And similar for testing2extra.
