Parent article: A proposal for an always-releasable Debian

The desire is to keep Testing always releasable; it's a worthy goal. Unfortunately, when updated packages are introduced, they can cause Testing to become 'not releasable'.

Seems to me Linux development has something that Debian Testing needs. I should think a staging area would make it quite a bit easier to add updated packages and to remove them if they cause problems. It would allow Testing to receive long-term stability testing, as it were, from those needing versions more recent that the latest official release. It would allow others to include some subset of the staging packages to test the near-term effects of those packages on Testing.

In short, I'm suggesting a process that provides smoother control of packages that are brought into Testing. Call it a settling bin if you wish. But 'Staging' works, too and, IIRC, can be found in parts of the Toy Story plot line(s). :)

Isn't that called "unstable" ?
