The Fedora updates-testing repositories contain updates scheduled to be released for the maintained releases of Fedora. Testing them and providing feedback in the fedora-test mailing list and the relevant bugzilla reports helps developers to fix any potential regressions in them. To test this, enable updates-testing repository in /etc/yum.repos.d and run 'yum update' to get them. A dedicated test system is more useful for these checks. If you want to test specific packages or enable the testing repository on the fly, you can do the following:

yum update --enablerepo=updates-testing
yum install <foo> --enablerepo=updates-testing

New updates are listed in the Bodhi tool at Testers use Bodhi to rate and comment on each update, which is then released for general public consumption or withdrawn, depending on the results.

You need a Fedora Account to log in to Bodhi. You can create an account now.
