Since development is frozen to concentrate on bug fixing, we may as well use
xen-unstable as the staging point for candidate patches rather than creating
an entirely new tree. Creating an explicit xen-3.0.3-testing tree and
announcing official release candidates encourages a broader range of people
to test the code (many will not touch xen-unstable at all).

Development is not frozen because we are using xen-unstable as a staging
tree. It is frozen simply because we are at the bug-fixing stage in the
release cycle.
