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.( ;-) )
