Um, you have some contradictions here.

Stable, server =/= testing, lenny.

Here's my server sources.list, running etch/stable.

Code:

deb http://debian.lcs.mit.edu/debian etch main contrib non-free
deb-src http://debian.lcs.mit.edu/debian etch main contrib non-free
deb http://security.debian.org/ etch/updates main contrib non-free

deb http://www.backports.org/debian etch-backports main contrib non-free

deb http://volatile.debian.org/debian-volatile etch/volatile main

deb-src http://debian.lcs.mit.edu/debian testing main contrib non-free
deb-src http://debian.lcs.mit.edu/debian unstable main contrib non-free

Combined with settings in /etc/apt/preferences, this defaults to etch, with the option of easily installing from etch-backports. And when I want to (try to) get a later version, I build it myself (apt-get source -b) from testing or unstable.

Code:

deb http://security.debian.org/ lenny/updates main contrib
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ lenny/updates main contrib

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

# deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian/ etch main contrib non-free
# deb-src http://http.us.debian.org/debian/ etch main

# deb http://security.debian.org/ etch/updates main contrib
# deb-src http://security.debian.org/ etch/updates main contrib

# deb http://www.debian-multimedia.org lenny main

# deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian sid main contrib non-free
# deb-src http://http.us.debian.org/debian sid main

# deb http://nightlies.videolan.org/build/sid-i386/arch ./

# deb http://apt.wicd.net lenny extras

I use lenny. I don't like pinning that much, so I basically comment in and comment out different sources as I need the packages from them. It means running 'aptitude update' a lot but I don't mind. I used to have sources for experimental kernels in this list but I removed them.

I run an all Lenny system. My sources.list is pretty generic:
Code:

# deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux LennyBeta2 _Lenny_ - Official Beta i386 CD Binary-1 20080607-17:43]/ lenny main

#deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux LennyBeta2 _Lenny_ - Official Beta i386 CD Binary-1 20080607-17:43]/ lenny main

deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ lenny main contrib non-free
deb-src http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ lenny main

deb http://security.debian.org/ lenny/updates main
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ lenny/updates main

#http://debian-multimedia.org
deb http://www.debian-multimedia.org lenny main

Here is a question:
For those of you that mix stable or testing with unstable, how do you know what you can safely grab from unstable without creating broken dependencies or breaking your system? I understand apt-pinning, but I don't know how you determine what is safe to get from unstable.

See the Giant thread at the top of the Debian forum:

Post your source.list - LinuxQuestions.org
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...e.list-330913/

Never understood the point of mixing repos, if you want testing run testing if you want sid run sid.
