The new feeds seem mostly great so far, but currently if you want to see which packages were added and removed from Arch Linux as a whole, you need to combine the separate feeds yourself, since the "all repos" feeds include testing.

I think it would make more sense to not include testing in these feeds, since those packages are usually just the ones which got db-moved to core/extra/community.

Additionally/alternatively it might be interesting to have the feeds for testing not include db-moved packages so as to instead record the ones which were pulled as bad -- but I'm unsure how feasible that is.
This task depends upon
