Is it possible to revert to a previous package in our current

The latest etherape (0.9.0-8) has a bug (277703) that makes it
unusable on my i686 and amd64 machines.
On the i686 I can get the previous package from http://snapshot.debian.net

Of course these things typically happen when you need the app the most
-- our network was mysteriously down and I couldn't use the tool I was
familiar with to see what was happening!


If it was a (very) recent upload the old deb will be in
pure64/old/... with the same subdirs as the new one in pure64/pool.

But since alioths disk is nearly full I clean that often.

Thanks, that's very helpful. Does anyone else do this? Goswin seems to keep them for just a day or two.
