I don't mind the technical behind this., was about the behaviour.
If i cannot get that behaviour with having two parallels branches,
then that's easy, there will be no vlc-0.9.x updates for F-8
That's not that important in that case but others case are.

btw we have new beta legacies drivers (71xx 96xx), the fun is that
suches parallele cvs repositories are needed for testing version from
the same series. (along with building kmod for the stable version).

Now, no matters is that live in a different cvs, with a different mock
config and a different repository.
For now i will handle that in my personal one (kwizart-testing), but
again, it rpmfusion will miss to handle that cases.
