    Debian testing/sarge: No more updates?

    What's up with the testing distribution? I've hardly seen any updates within the last week or so. I understand that people might be busy rebuilding the security server infrastructure but it seems odd that package flow from sid to sarge seems to have stopped completely. Is it just my mirror or is anybody else running the testing branch experiencing the same?

    Well, I found nothing on the mailing lists, but I tried an apt-get dist-upgrade last night and 6 packages were upgraded.

    I guess the different versions for glibc (2.2.5 vs 2.3.1 in testing and unstable respectively) are to blame for so many packages not seeping through to testing automatically.

    Oh well, I just use apts pinning to at least get the most important packages up-to-date hoping it won't break to much stuff.
