I suggest that you leave production of stable distributions to those
who are experienced at it. This is neither sensible nor the way we do
things. The rule is "You upload stable software to unstable" (there's
a whole pile of reasoning behind it, but that's grossly offtopic).

Similarly, the contents of testing should be what you [maintainer] are
willing to release *today*. Not what you hope will become something
suitable for release later.
