For example how do I suspend build after installed and before it gets
into my system?
And how do I digest?

At first you told me that you don't have phases because you want to
force better QA.
Then when we discuss that you realize that my QA level is insane.
And I cannot achieve this because of lack of tools, that result in you
trying to force high QA level :)
Anyway, I can say now that I understand your view I won't bother you again.
