We should provide stable versions as much as possible. I would
recommend if you could ask a push for the 4.10 packages to mageia2.
Mix development and stable packages in official release seems
rather... "uncompleted".

However, if development/unstable packages are provided in official
release, I think it should be OK to provide stable versions as
updates. <-- Please correct me if I'm wrong about this part.
