Potato to Woody

I have a Debian Potato. I would like to use Balsa 1.2.3, which is available as part of Debian Woody. I have read in many places that an upgrade from potato to woody is easy, but I must be missing something.
apt-get dist-upgrade <cr>

is not enough. What am I missing?


PS Am I crazy to comtemplate this upgrade?

You have to update your /etc/apt/sources.list to include the woody sources.


apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade

Potato to Woody is okay, but it might be interesting. just do some bkgrnd work and leap feet first.

There are two ways of constructing a software design; one way is to make it so simple that there are obviously no deficiencies, and the other way is to make it so complicated that there are no obvious deficiencies. The first method is far more difficult.
