    As you and Paul noted, I did indeed have development turned on ( I use KYum
    which has a GUI which makes it very easy to select/deselect repos). I turned
    off development and extras-development, and now I'm down to a list of 55
    updates, but of those, 50 are from updates-testing. I have no more reason to
    have that repo turned on than I had for the other two previously mentioned.

    If one of you guys would like to, I'd be interested in hearing your views on
    when it 'is' appropriate to turn on those repositories.
