just wondering how debian coordinates that switch, wheezy stays wheezy, jessie 
stays jessie of course ... but considering all the mirrors etc maybe it wouldn't 
be a bad idea to delete the stable->wheezy link then wait a little for all the 
mirrors to follow before creating the new stable->jessie link ... it could get 
messy in the typical case of apt using a mirror, but also including the debian 
site as well if stable pointed to different versions on each.

anyway just speculating, since this  mirror at least seemed to have no stable 
link at the time I did apt-get update.

testing doesn't add anything new after the freeze, but will delete stuff that 
can't get working in time for the release, before the release.
