Somehow I missed the info about stable-staging, and searching the forum didn't cleared that up.
is stable-staging between stable and testing ? how much different is it from stable and testing ?
also pacman-mirrors -a -S stable-staging complains with:
sudo pacman-mirrors --geoip -a -S stable-staging
pacman-mirrors [-h] [-f [NUMBER]] [-i [-d]] [-m METHOD] [--status]

[--api] [-S/-B BRANCH] [-p PREFIX]
[-P PROTO [PROTO...]] [-R] [-U URL]
pacman-mirrors: error: argument -S/-B/--set-branch: invalid choice: 'stable-staging' (choose from 'stable', 'stable-stating', 'testing', 'unstable')
sudo pacman-mirrors --geoip -a -S stable-stating
::INFO Branch in config is changed
.: ERROR: Invalid setting in
'Branch = stable-stating'; EXPECTED stable|testing|unstable|stable-staging
there seems to be some confusion between stable-staging and stable-stating !
final question, why is for example brave newer and being updated on stable but not on testing ? when in testing or unstable, it seems to use an older version and not be updated. is this normal ?
