There was a lot said in IRC that one should *not* (even if told to) put "testing" or "stable" in their sources.list because of the changeovers. Right now here's what they are pointing to:

stable: Stretch
oldstable: Jessie
testing: Buster
oldoldstable: Wheezy

People are strongly advising one use the version name (ie. "buster", "stretch", etc.) instead.
