Lenny, I think.

It will remain as it is, you'll be running sarge or oldstable. There will
continue to be security updates for a time (probably a short time).

Yea, I was wondering something similar.  I'm running etch.  After I read the replies, I checked my source list - and, all are etch, except CD #1 and #2, which are "testing_etch."

So, when etch becomes stable, I just simply need to install the updates and then it will be the same as stable etch?
