He was discussing changing all his sources to testing in order to track 
testing not Jessie.

He said:

"Running `aptitude update' with the changes" (from Jessie to testing) "in 
place does not produce any output that looks problematice (to me).  But maybe 
that is not a thorough test?"

Having the changes in place would make no difference at all at the moment.  So 
it is not a test at all.
