Unstable packages propagate gradually into testing as described in
http://www.debian.org/devel/testing/. Every so often, we move the whole
of testing to stable, call that a new release, and create a new testing
under a new codename. After that, stable is only changed to fix critical
problems (security fixes and maybe a few other things).
Releases are announced on the debian-announce mailing list; the last was
in July 2002.
