Won't that prevent upgrades when mozilla-browser_2:1+rc2-3 is
available in unstable? What I want is: use some packages from unstable
iff they are newer than the currently installed version.
I don't understand why apt tries to downgrade. I have three versions of
dist version priority
testing 2:0.9.9-6 500
unstable 2:1+rc2-2 700
"local" 2:1+rc2-2.1 100
I know that 700 > 500 > 100, but as 2:1+rc2-2.1 > 2:1+rc2-2 apt has
to downgrade mozilla in order to get the version from unstable, which it
should only do for priorities > 1000 (according to the manpage).
