The testing repo is currently unstable and will require specific steps to update from it. At this time please do not update any testing systems. Doing so may cause your system to become unusable.

The testing repos were marked as unstable because of a filesystem layout change merging the bin directories. While I am not a huge fan of this we are following the lead of Arch Linux because it makes package management easier with our project.

If you wish to resume tracking the testing repos please update your system by running the following script:
http://cgit.linhes.org/linhes_pkgbuild/plain/abs/core/update81-82.sh?h=testing

There is no backout plan or partial update, once started the upgrade needs to complete or the system may not boot correctly.

The largest stumbling block that will cause the update to fail are non-linhes packages that have been installed. If thats the case the packages should be uninstalled & update the system. After the update it should be ok to reinstall the 3rd party pkg.

The update has been tested many times but there are always unknown factors.
If problems are encountered and the script quits before the update is complete its OK to run the update multiple times.

With R8.2 released and now in the release repos those that were on -testing on production boxes may want to switch back to release. The testing repos could become unstable as work on the next version begins.
