The F-8 and F-8.testing stuff in livna was a major PITA to maintain for
me (as the one that was the interface to the buildsys and the one that
had to keep the repo in shape) in Livna -- especially for kmods, as
maintainers more then once did crazy things which lead to real problems
when kmods needed to get built for new Fedora kernels.
It also doesn't work with current CVS/plague design and is afaics not
that easy to set up (the trick I used in Livna is not possible in CVS
afaics). So I strongly vote for not even think about things like a
F-8.testing branch in CVS. Fedora works fine without it as well, so I
see no real reason why we should need it.
