I'm new to apt pinning and have a question. I've been reading online but am confused. I'm running testing release but would like to be able to grab individual programs occasionally from unstable or experimental. My question is this (please see my /etc/apt/preferences file below): If I run aptitude upgrade, will it upgrade from testing and then all programs in unstable and experimental that are not in testing? The only time I want aptitude to bring anything over from the other two repositories is when I manually request it from the command line, for example: aptitude install iceweasel/unstable. Here is my /etc/apt/preferences file:
Pin: release a=testing
Pin: release a=unstable
Pin: release a=experimental
I of course have unstable and experimental repros in my sources.list file.
