Sarge security updates

I am using Sarge on a dial-up workstation.  I would appreciate if anyone 
could expand on the statement below copied from the Debian Security FAQ.

For instance, do security patches always get applied to testing?.
How long do security updates to testing lag behind stable?.


Q: How is security handled for testing and unstable?

A: The short answer is: it's not. Testing and unstable are rapidly moving 
targets and the security team does not have the resources needed to 
properly support those. If you want to have a secure (and stable) server 
you are strongly encouraged to stay with stable. However, the security 
secretaries will try to fix problems in testing and unstable after they 
are fixed in the stable release.
