I've changed the wording a little and enabled it for when suites are testing:

This happens automatically when a new stable release is made but my
above changes are to the stretch page.

This is the first time I've had reason to use a release still designated as "testing". [In the past I've had bandwidth constraints limiting me to purchased DVD sets.]

1. At _this point_ in the release cycle is there reason to prefer URLs specifying "stretch" over ones with "testing"?

2. Is there a document (or blog or ??) targeted at someone using a "testing" release for the first time. My interest relates to the move from MySQL to Mariadb - I've already been pointed to links to the fine details of the change. I'm asking if there something with a broad perspective on dealing with any testing release.
