[Debian] Stable: Woody or Sarge?


according to the Debian reference (, the current stable release is sarge (3.1) and testing is etch.

However, when i browsed for CD images, it seems that the latest stable release on offer is 3.0r2 (woody).

Which is which?

Seems to me they are getting ready for the new change Woody is the current stable and Sarge is testing. However, as I understand it, the libraries and some other packages are frozen already in Sarge in preparation for its becoming stable. I think the hold up now is mostly the new installer being finalized and a few packages becoming "stable".
