Which security repo for testing?


Hello,

Just looking at an old sources.list file on one of my machines. Should I be using the 1st group or 2nd group for testing repos?

Thanks,

Try to connect to both manually and see what they have to offer (hint: timestamps! )

Hi,

Thanks for your reply and nudge up the learning curve. I'm not exactly sure what you mean though by manually connecting. I usually use aptitude update. Another nudge appreciated.

Cheers,

I was thinking about your plain old browser However, having done so myself, it seems the latter (http://secure-testing.debian.net) is more for testing securities on Debian then a security repo for the testing branch. My advise is thus: use the first one (http://security.debian.org)
