hey everyone - just a quick question: aren't priorities >1000 supposed to lead to automatic downgrades (with dist-upgrade wven if that means removing stuff)?
Lately I've pulled in a bunch of stuff from experimental to a. test some stuff on hadret's experimental repo and b. get around the dependency problem of lmde's font rendering to install certain dev packages.
Well now I've tested and built to my satisfaction and I don't need all that stuff anymore and I wanted to downgrade to testing. None of the packages cause any problems but you know - i want to be on the safe side. and I could've sworn I've done this before but no luck.
I pinned testing to 1005 and just to be on the safe side (although it shouldn'T make a difference) experimental to a negative value, ran an apt-get dist-upgrade and..... nothing.
Am I understanding something completely wrong? Is my brain turning to mush? I've had a sid/experimental debian install on my spare partition a couple of months ago and I could've sworn I've done this before. I read the according man page again and it also said that was the way it's supposed to work......
