Re: When sarge goes stable

A quick question.Having only been in Debian-land for 4 months I haven't

testing; testing ---> stable; etc.
Since Sarge is due to be released sometime soon, when it goes stable
will Sid become testing? Will there be a (momentary) gap in the
"testing" phase? That is, are they in lock-step or independent?
Thanks to all for the clear and informative answers. For my needs it
appears that I should leave all my sources.list url's point to testing
and not to sarge. That way, after a short pause when sarge is frozen and
etch hasn't appeared yet I can carry on my smooth upgrading path. I'm
quite happy with my experiences with "testing". For me, it's a nice
compromise between keeping up with the latest and instability. Does this
make sense to you?
