Re: APT Strange Behaviour (Priorities)
Thanks, Daniel, for this helpful information.
I just discovered another similar paradox. I tried to get source package for pidgin from backports.org. That repository
was explicitly pinned at 500 and testing at 290. But, look
main:~# apt-get source pidgin
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
Need to get 13.2MB of source archives.
Get:1 http://ftp2.de.debian.org testing/main pidgin 2.4.3-1 (dsc) [1800B]
Get:2 http://ftp2.de.debian.org testing/main pidgin 2.4.3-1 (tar) [13.1MB]
Get:3 http://ftp2.de.debian.org testing/main pidgin 2.4.3-1 (diff) [59.0kB]
Fetched 13.2MB in 8m46s (25.0kB/s)

dpkg-source: extracting pidgin in pidgin-2.4.3
dpkg-source: unpacking pidgin_2.4.3.orig.tar.gz
dpkg-source: applying ./pidgin_2.4.3-1.diff.gz
So, it is downloading from testing, although it has lower priority. How could I make it chose backports.org?
