[wp-testers] Archive of pages uses home.php template

That sounds correct to me. The post_type isn't a template trigger, it
doesn't affect which template gets used anywhere, really. So it's
seeing a more-or-less home type query, which would use home.php.

The page trigger is page= and that would make it use a page template
or page.php, because that is specifying a single page. There's no
other appropriate template for multiple page entries except for
home/index, really.
