We have two (in my particular case slightly related) problems.

1) The fact that something builds in the pristine final SDK does not guarantee 
that it will go through the autobuilder (as extras-devel might contain non-
backwards compatible updates to the SDK packages).

2) We seem to have an 'interesting' possibility, where, due to current repo 
layout and promotion policies, you can get into a situation in which you are 
not able to promote your own application update to Extras because of other 
people's development activity in Extras-devel (especially nasty if you were to 
make an important security fix). 

We don't seem to have a final proposal (yet), looking for solutions, adding an 
extra repo for updates/staging is just one of them.
