Yep and I remember to have asked the same question worded like this:
Do updates-testing behaviours ends to be like it was with livna or with fedora?

If the push script default everything to testing, but on the others
side it lack support for pushing packages to stable. The result is:
more human admin tasks. For example, I want the vlc built in F-9 to be
pushed to stable right now. how should I do ?

Now another case: vlc in F-8 will stay with 0.8.7, because the
behaviour will change too much and my grand-mother (that use Fedora
8). will be disappointed.Now, I don't want to discuss why it is needed
like this, here.
But what is needed actually is a way to "also" propose an update to
0.9.x. Can I handle that with the rpmfusion-free-updates-testing
repository ? It will lead to have two parallels cvs (F-8 F-8.testing
like it was with livna), because it should remains possible to update
the two versions.

If not possible, then I will stay with 0.8.7 in rpmfusion for F-8 and
provides the 0.9.x in my personal repository. (But that's not the way
it like it to be used).
