pinning a package in backports
As far as I can see, the backports repository is checked by default and I don't need to add anything in auto/config.
I'm struggling with pinning the 1.8 version of Git present in wheezy-backports.
This is the error:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
git : Depends: git-man (> 1:22.214.171.124) but 1:126.96.36.199-1+wheezy1 is to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
My config/apt/preferences contains these lines:
Package: git git-*
Pin: release a=wheezy-backports
The same occurs if I add in auto/config:
--backports true \
but I think that this option is redundant, since I see that apt donwloads the indexes from wheezy-backports.
Thanks in advance
