Bug Description


  (oneiric-amd64)root@raleigh:/srv/home/laney/bin/ubuntu-dev-tools/ubuntutools# backportpackage -u ppa:laney/backports-testing -s maverick -d lucid tuxguitar
  backportpackage: Downloading https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+archive/primary/+files/tuxguitar_1.2-6ubuntu1.dsc

There is an updated version -6ubuntu1.1 in maverick-{updates,security}. backportpackage should download the most recent version in all pockets instead of RELEASE unconditionally. (There's no way that I can see to override the pocket selection either).

This bug was fixed in the package ubuntu-dev-tools - 0.130

ubuntu-dev-tools (0.130) unstable; urgency=low

  * pull-lp-source: Support source packages with a bad version string
    (LP: #844682).
  * backportpackage:
    - Search for newer versions in -{updates,security} on Ubuntu (LP: #823833).
    - Use Ubuntu and Debian as fall back check in codename_to_distribution to
      allow backporting to Ubuntu from a Debian system (LP: #823832).
