Bug#177688: apt 'W: Did not understand pin type version'
I've an entry for the latest wine-debs in my sources list. Those packages all
have an version like this: Version: 1:0.20030121.034247
Now I've set my preferences file to
Pin: version 0.2003*
And: It works ! Apt updates my wine-environment daily. Now the "minor" bug
apt shows me this warning :/
W: Did not understand pin type version
But it should (and it does !) understand the pin type 'version'.
Should, because it's in the apt-howto.
For example, to keep package sylpheed that I have modified to use
"reply-to-list" at version 0.4.99, I add:
Pin: version 0.4.99*
