Re: seeking more convenient than apt-pinning

apt-pinning = "I want to swim without getting wet"
Personally, I would never ever do it. It is bound to bring in troubles on the long run, especially when there are packages with many dependencies involved.

Re: seeking more convenient than apt-pinning

Before turning to Sid I used to apt-pin all day. Very usefull if you want to keep your system in stable or testing and get some packages from unstable. Pinning isn't needed for experimental as this is automatically set to priority 100.
It never broke my system in a way that couldn't be solved smile
