As this message has gone to the users' list I need to answer with
advice to users.  Users are people that want to use their computers
and not spend time playing with broken installations.

*** Warning ***

The testing directory can contain software that will not work on
your system.  There may be conflicting packages and files.  Testing
is for testing and as such will contain completely untested software.

Running pkg-get with -u or -update or equivalent will install and/or
update extra packages that may not be the target of your intended test.

Users should NOT run a general update from testing.
