Re: Debian testing suitable for productive?

Hello Martin WHEELER <mwheeler@startext.co.uk>,

Sometimes, you know, there'll be security advisory or update packages
available, say openssh or libzip, and you need to immediately update
your production machines to aviod known vulnerability. However, you
can't just apt-get upgrade if you do not run the stable release.

What method is recommended to keep the testing or unstable release
update and free from security vulnerability?
