Seems like a logical solution to me. At least one would like to have a  
-proposed repo for new additions. For a rolling release, isn't every  
addition really a stable release update?

Even though we in the Ubuntu Studio team do not handle packaging for  
Ubuntu outside of our own custom packages (ubuntustudio-*), we'd be very  
much interested in doing QA for multimedia packages. If not for the whole  
spectrum of what's available, then at least for the most common and  
important ones.

We'd like to have the opportunity to stop an update, if we find a severe  
regression, and stop the package from being released until we are able to  
fix the bug by either patching it or syncing it with any of the upstream
