What's this repository?


Hi All,

I'm running Debian Testing "Bullseye" and have the standard sources.list file. I was playing around with an app that generates a sources.list file. The only difference is that it suggested the following repository:

deb http://deb.debian.org/debian/ testing-updates main

Not sure what "testing-updates" is and if it will benefit me in any way. Below are the actual active repositories in my sources.list:

deb http://deb.debian.org/debian/ testing main contrib non-free
deb-src http://deb.debian.org/debian/ testing main contrib non-free

deb http://security.debian.org/debian-security testing-security main contrib non-free
deb-src http://security.debian.org/debian-security testing-security main contrib non-free

Thanks!

the best place where you can check it is the official wiki: https://wiki.debian.org/SourcesList
