Well, here is my sources.list file. It won't be much good to you
though as I use a private mirror, but should give you the picture -

deb ./
deb testing main contrib non-free
deb unstable main contrib non-free

and my apt.conf is

        Default-Release "testing";
        Get {
                Fix-Broken "true";
                Show-Upgraded "true";
