Why would you comment out security?  Testing has a security repository
and you should definitely keep it enabled; unstable is the branch that
doesn't have one since packages with security fixes go directly into
unstable without a delay.

Also, if you plan to keep your machine tracking 'sarge' after sarge
become stable, you might want to use "sarge" instead of "testing" in
your sources.list lines -- at the moment they both point to the same
thing, but when the big switch happens, this will keep you on sarge
instead of the new testing branch.
