As others have mentioned, though you might not have seen the replies if you
weren't CC'd on them, you could change from 'testing' to 'squeeze' now as
they are currently the same thing. Then when squeeze goes stable you could
change to 'stable', this will allow you to track the stable distribution and
it will upgrade to the next stable 'wheezy', when that is released.

Ehm, no. If you have 'squeeze' in your /etc/apt/sources.list it will
stay at 'squeeze' until you change 'squeeze' to something else, no
matter if debian moves beyond wheezy or not. In order to upgrade to
'wheezy' you'd have to edit your /etc/apt/sources.list again (no big
deal for me).

Ehm, no, what? Re-read what I typed. Once squeeze is stable, changing your sources to stable means you will track stable, whether it is lenny, squeeze, wheezy, or whatever is coming after that.
