Hope you don't mind the question, but just to make everything perfectly
clear for me: is this ftp repo 'safe' for daily production use, or are
these kernels not stable enough?

HEAD_STAGING might not be safe, HEAD itself should be really safe right now.

In general: They should have no known serious issues but they are rather
untested, so feedback is welcome at the kernel list. KOTD means kernel of the
day which is a *development* snapshot without real testing, so use at your own

I use them regularly on my machine - but I always install them with rpm -i so
that I have an older kernel to go back to just in case...
