With the caveat that I'm not entirely sure it's correct (although it
seems to be working properly for me), this is what I have in
Pin: release a=testing
Pin: release l=Debian-Security
I also have unstable in my sources-list, and I allow that to get pinned
by default to 500, or so saith apt-cache policy:
500 ftp://ftp.egr.msu.edu unstable/main Packages
*** 2.2.5-11.1 0
900 http://security.debian.org stable/updates/main Packages
700 ftp://ftp.egr.msu.edu testing/main Packages
As I said, it seems to work properly for me, but if someone has
suggestions or corrections, I'd very much appreciate them.
