I think MintUpdate is coming on really well, thanks for your efforts Clem & team. I think the repo snapshots idea is bril and will make LMDE a much easier package for newcomers which should be the aim of any distro:D
Thanks for the tip ukbrian.
I am sure this works, but also can see lots of people getting updates to things they THINK they have pinned in synaptic, and Mint Update ignores. Something folks should be aware of...
Just an update on "pinned" in synaptic upgrades showing up in MintUpdate.
Even though they show up, they WILL NOT install with MintUpdate even if "selected".
They will just be there again with the next refresh.
As "ukbrian" mentioned, you can "pin" them in MintUpdate as well by right clicking, and choose to "ignore". They wont show up again.
