Ack and thanks, my bad.
So let's try again. Now we have
1) cd /var/local/cache/pbuilder/result/
2) wajig install r-base-core_2.0.1-4_i386.deb r-gnome_2.0.1-4_i386.deb
which are the current versions in unstable and testing
3) wajig auto-download
indicating r-base-core and r-gnome will be upgraded from my
local experimental archive
4) wajig dist-upgrade
which installs the two
5) still scratching my head as I got one email with the (joint) changelog
entry, but no email with the NEWS entry.
