My question was about keeping my system up-to-date and not about
installing a package.

But I see there is a way using pinning, after that I can simple do a
system upgrade.

When I want to use all parts of openoffice.org from backports, is it
then enought when I pin the metapackage "openoffice.org", or do I need
to pin every single package?
