Never mix feeds.  Period.

Ask someone with OE commit privs to add whatever applications you want
in the fso-testing feeds to simply add that application's name to and it will be automatically built.

If you need a specific application ipk from a different feed, then
download the ipk and install it manually, using your judgement to
determine whether it's dependencies are going to screw your system up.
Take a full backup of your rootfs first.
