Moving back to stable from testing?

As I noted here in another post, at one time I thought I was running on stable, but later realized I am on testing. I am on dialup/slow and I don't upgrade very often. I have had a few exciting moments, but have been able to fix it every time so far. What's the best way to move the system back to stable repos? I think I would rather experiment with new app versions (most notably Ardour) by compiling a second bleeding-edge copy and test without possible risking the system.

Thanks

I didn't know how near the next release was. That sounds a lot better than having to set repos to stable and then just wait for six months for it to catch up!

Dont Worry...

Your system as is, is very nearly "Stable", as the next release is almost upon us. When they announce the new release, then just change your active repos's in Synaptic to deb http://apt.64studio.com/64studio/stable/ 64studio main and upgrade. You could then just check the Debian security updates every now and again... You could always then enable testing just to get an app that is tested fully (by the likes of me) and then disable again. Cheers!
