Hi list!

On http://www.backports.org/dokuwiki/doku.php?id=instructions the section
about pinning is incorrect. You don't have to pin each backport
individually,  you can also use wildcards in /etc/apt/preferences to e.g.
use always a  package from backports (if it exists):

Package: *
Pin: release a=etch-backports
Pin-Priority: 999

Many people don't want to pin their whole installation to whatever happens to be in backports though.
