OK. I have the output from the command:
500 http://security.debian.org testing/updates/non-free Packages
what should I specify in the preferences file:
Pin: release a=testing
500 http://security.debian.org testing/updates/contrib
Packages release v=None,o=Debian,a=testing,l=Debian-Security,c=contrib
too, has the same "a" field. Or should I specify all the fields - like
Pin: release v=None,o=Debian,a=testing,l=Debian-Security,c=contrib
