I haven't followed this thread carefully enough to know the entire
situation, but would it work to set up a pin (see apt_preferences(8))?
Pin: release a=*
(can you say release a=*? try with release a=stable if a=* doesn't work.)
[off topic] One small wish I have is for Package: apt* to work. As it is,
Package is either a fixed package name, or *. If there's a group of
packages that you want to pin, you have to name them one at a time. A regex
or glob expression would be nice. I guess I should just go file a wishlist
#define X(x,y) x##y
