Hmm perhaps not a question for this list, but wat happens when the following lines are in sources.list:

deb ftp://ftp.debian.org/debian/ stable main
deb ftp://security.debian.org/debian-security/ stable/updates main

and there is a new release, i.e. `stable' is now a symlink to say `sarge' instead of `woody'?  When the box does its weekly `apt-get update && apt-get upgrade'  Won't there change a lot?
And wouldn't it also become hazardous with only the second line?
