Is this like Maemo where we have testing unstable etc repos?

In principle yes, but there are some differences. In Alpine, there are these branches:

- stable (for each version such as 3.12, 3.11, 3.10 and so on)
- edge (the latest stuff)

In addition, each branch also has these repositories which reflect how official the packages are:

- main
- community
- testing

The nice thing is that you can mix them and only install certain packages e.g. from community by defining a prefix in /etc/apk/repositories. See the official documentation for details.
