I agree !!! What the best way to adopt :

The "nofear user" who wants to be the more uptodate as possible have to
still upgrade from rawhide?

The users who looks for stability just have to update from "os and
updates " repository?

the hybrid users in addition to the stability solution will add the
testing repository?

Is it possible to automatically update the stable release (core +
update, eventually testing), and update "on demands" the rawhide new

And if it's possible how to configure the rhn-applet to show us the
source of the updates (core,updates,testing,rawhide...)
