Good suggestion.  Keep the currently stable version as "conboy".  If you want 
testers to have access to a new version, call it "conboy-unstable" (or 
conboy-testing or something).  Both would be in extras-devel but 
only "conboy" would be in extras-testing and extras.

Once you are happy that the unstable version is stable enough to be released 
to ordinary users, repackage it as "conboy" 0.6 (and make it replace 
conboy-testing 0.6).

So conboy-unstable never makes it out of extras-devel.
