General query: what are the criteria for kernels to move to core repo?

Is there a check list that our devs follow which helps decide when a new kernel version is moved from the testing repo to the core repo? I have seen version 3.11 in the testing repo for a while now. Thank you!

Re: General query: what are the criteria for kernels to move to core repo?

Dunno about a formal list but if you read along in arch-dev-public it seems as though making sure all module packages (virtualbox, nvidia, etc.) are working is a key item.

EDIT: It would be interesting to see how long each new release stayed in [testing].  Does anyone know of a web-exposed log that shows movement of packages out of [testing]?  Below are the dates when a new major version was built and presumably published to [testing]:

3.10-1 on 2013-07-10
3.9-1 on 2013-04-29
3.8-1 on 2013-02-20
3.7-1 on 2012-12-11
3.6-1 on 2012-10-02
3.5-1 on 2012-07-22
