I upgraded this morning and this is my list:

deb http://packages.linuxmint.com/ debian main upstream import
deb http://mirror.metrocast.net/linuxmint-debian/latest testing main contrib non-free
deb http://mirror.metrocast.net/linuxmint-debian/latest/security testing/updates main contrib non-free
deb http://mirror.metrocast.net/linuxmint-debian/latest/multimedia testing main non-free

The only problem I encountered was my VirtualBox broke and I had to remove it and install it from the Virtual Box website...
