please allow pinning with codenames was: "please add Version field to testing Release file"
reassign 509471 apt
ftp.debian.org got this bug, requesting for version number addition to
the release file for testing. A short discussion in #debian-release
showed that this idea doesn't have much support, but that there
currently doesn't seem to be a good way to solve this otherwise.
It seems the best way would be if apt gains the ability to pin using the
"Codename:" field in Release files.
So, reassigning this bug to the apt package, asking for this feature.
