I have a Debian Potato. I would like to use Balsa 1.2.3, which is
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.

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.
