Re: Just one package from woody with apt-get?
I've done what you're describing with apt-get.
I have the woody sources in sources.list, but commented out until I want
a single package.
Then I uncomment the woody lines and do...
apt-get install <single package name>
And it just gets the most up to date version which is usually in woody.
For instance, Postgresql 7.
