Problem-Description (date of occurance)

(currently none)


From the Debian Security FAQ:

Security for testing benefits from the security efforts of the entire project for unstable. However, there is a minimum two-day migration delay, and sometimes security fixes can be held up by transitions. The Security Team helps to move along those transitions holding back important security uploads, but this is not always possible and delays may occur. Especially in the months after a new stable release, when many new versions are uploaded to unstable, security fixes for testing may lag behind. If you want to have a secure (and stable) server you are strongly encouraged to stay with stable.

There does exist a testing-security repository but it is empty. It is there so that people can have the line in their SourcesList to facilitate easily changing it to the next release name. To be clear, there are no security updates in this repository.

See the security page for information about keeping your Debian install secure.
