The apt in woody can selective installs from testing or unstable,
yes. But if I do an apt-get upgrade only the packages with my main
distribution (which is stable) will be upgraded. The testing packages
will be ignored because they have a newer version than the stable
one. If I change the preferences to testing having a higher priority,
apt would upgrade all the packages to testing, which I don't want.
I just want to find out which packages have a higher version number
than is in stable. That is, if the packages which come from testing
have a new version in testing, but leaving all stable packages alone.
