Re: Going from stable to testing

Yes, generally that's true. But at this very moment, 'testing' is being
bugfixed to a point where it will become the new 'stable' any week/month
now. Stable-type quick security updates are already occurring. There are
still more bugs, so it's not quite as safe as the old Woody yet.
Can I upgrade my system to be all testing just by adjusting
yes, just put testing instead of stable and then run apt-get update
I noticed this:
Note that tracking the testing distribution of Debian can have the side
effect of delaying the installation of packages containing security
fixes, since such packages are uploaded to unstable and only later
migrate to testing.
Is there anything to do about that?
I'm running a Woody, and tweaking a Sarge to replace it at the
appropriate time. I'm seeing the same security fixes that Woody gets
also arriving on Sarge, along with the other bugfixes.
