As a longtime Gentoo user and overlay producer (but not of Awn and friends yet), I would love to know what the source of that quote is.

Given the nature of awn-extras (many applets with different authors in different states of stability), it is rather difficult to say "the tree is stable". We are currently exploring the option of splitting up the releases a la gst-plugins: supported (AKA stable) and unsupported (AKA unstable).

Also, in awn-extras-testing, there is a greatly simplified build system in place (written by myself). Something tells me that the Gentoo devs in question (I assume the quote came from a Gentoo dev) won't actually look at it, but whatever. This is what overlays are for.
