Debian Stable -> Testing

Hi all,

I've just upgraded from stable to testing (Lenny -> Squeeze).

I replaced string "lenny" with "squeeze" in source.list

My question is: I must keep this repo?

deb squeeze-backports main contrib non-free
or does not make sense?

I have to eliminate also this?

deb squeeze/updates main contrib non-free
thankyou very much

The security updates should be retained (though keep in mind that testing versions of debian may not get security updates as promptly as stable versions).

However, the backports repository will not exist until the stable version of squeeze has been released (you are getting the newest testing versions anyway, and what would they be backported to?). So you might as well comment out this line, at least until squeeze becomes the stable release, hopefully not too many months away.
