Does it make sense for packages to wait in testing for two weeks when they
are new packages?

For example, all the packages I'm building for the first time in epel8...

Even outside of new packages I rarely get karma for my Fedora packages,
much less for my EPEL packages and two weeks is a "long time". I have some
upstreams where I have to skip releases because they update within the two
week period and the policy of obsoleting an update when a new one is
created would mean they would perpetually be in testing and never make it
to stable.

Perhaps it would be a good idea to let the maintainer determine if a
previous update should be obsoleted or not when pushing a new update?
