    ....altogether nine (9) updates of which exactly no package will be
    installed on a sarge system since the version number of the normal
    sarge package is higher.

    Basically, there are _no_ security updates for sarge available. See
    the Securing Debian Manual[1], especially chapter 11.3.7, as well as
    Colin's message for further information.

    Actually, no.

    Cheers,
    Flo

    Unfortunately, that hardly ever actually contains any useful updates at
    the moment.

    Neither. Wait it out, otherwise it sort of defeats the point of
    running testing...
