i usually check if there is a newer version there
if i"m experiencing a bug in a version that is in
testing or unstable to see if the newer version solves
the bug. most recently it was libreoffice, but the
newer version didn"t make any difference so i purged
it and reinstalled the testing version again (and then
worked around the issue).
