Re: New package version releases
When I run "reporbug aptitude" as david, I get:
Your version (0.6.3-4) of aptitude appears to be out of date.
The following newer release(s) are available in the Debian archive:
I am trying to see if a bug report exists for aptitude, but all I'm getting is the above. I understand sid having a newer version than wheezy but why would reportbug report that squeeze has a newer version? I even checked on packages.debian.org, and the stable version is lower/older than the testing version!

You will need the whole release file, but you will only need to
install packages from sid that are required to meet the dependencies
See the link on iguanasuicide.net from earlier in the thread on
setting up pinning and package priorities.

I'm not sure what you are seeing in reportbug here. Is there a bug
you see that is fixed by the version in sid?
