I now have:
+ The <em>testing</em> distribution normally receives
+ its packages via the <em>unstable</em> distribution
+ after a short time lag. However sometimes, such as
+ during release freezes before a new stable release or
+ when a problem in the <em>testing</em> distribution
+ requires fixing before the <em>unstable</em> version
+ can migrate, direct updates to a package in
+ <em>testing</em> are useful. This distribution value
+ is used for those exceptions, after approval from the
+ release managers.
for that paragraph. Does that look better?
