If your mirror's even vaguely current, leaving it at woody should be
fine if you want to track testing; people were generally burned because
they really wanted to be tracking unstable.
The best thing to do is use status names (stable, testing, unstable) if
you want to track by status, and codenames (potato, woody, sid) if you
want to track particular distributions. Of course, sid will always be
equal to unstable (unless it all gets changed around again).
