Not sure where this should actually go to (apt? ftp-masters? backports?)...
please reassign as it fits :-)
It's seems to have never properly worked for me, to use the suite-names for
backports repos in sources list.
deb http://foo/debian/ oldstable/updates main contrib non-free
instead of jessie/updates goes fine, but:
deb http://foo/debian/ oldstable-backports main contrib non-free
gives a warning:
W: Conflicting distribution: http://foo oldstable-backports InRelease (expected oldstable-backports but got jessie-backports)
in aptitude and friends.
Looking at the Release files there seem to be some possibly wrong usage of the fields?
jessie's security Release has:
while that of the backports Release has:
Origin: Debian Backports
Label: Debian Backports
not using Suite: oldstable-backports for some reason.
Can this be fixed (for all backports suites)?
