Weird. I just tried it and I also get the unstable version. However,
there is a workaround:
Use `apt-cache showpkg pan' to find out what the available versions
are; I see:
So, 0.13.0-4 is the version you want. To get it, do
apt-get source pan=0.13.0-4
I'm looking for the reference, but I remember reading that `apt-get
source' doesn't work the same way as `apt-get install' WRT the -t
switch and pinning.
Hope this helps,
