Package: mesos
Pin: version 1.3.*, release o=packages.le-vert.net
Pin-Priority: 1000

This is documented in 'man apt_preferences', at the end of the section
"The Effect of APT Preferences"; the comma in a Pin: line functions as
an "and" operator. (There's a caveat mentioned there, but it shouldn't
apply in your case.)
