Re: downgrade sid to woody?

AFAIK all of them. APT uses the newest versions it can get, as I
experienced lots of times in the past jumping between woody and potato
and, more seldom, sid and woody.

I'd a similar problem in the past and found no practicable solution :-(.

The only thing I found was the command

    dpkg -i --force-downgrade <package>

with the result it comments the installation of the woody-version of
the package but dpkg -s <package> gave the version of sid further on.
So, for short I'm not really shure even if this worked in my case
downgrading just a package from sid to woody. With the former problem 
downgrading the whole from sid to woody I did a new installation of my 
system (56k-modem :=((( ).

Hope anybody else has better hints.( ;-) )
