I always like to know exactly where packages are coming from so I use:

looks like repo priority is deprecated, I nearly never see discussion
about it, then I gess it's better to hav new repositories have a lower
number than old if a repository change is expected?

Repo priority is one of those things that are in the "don't fiddle with
it unless you are absolutely sure" class.

You reasoning for why a new (do you mean newly added or what?)
repository should have a lower priority makes no sense.

All in all the reasoning I've seen for altering priorities is shaky.
This is a facility that could be removed with asymptotically close to
zero impact apart from upsetting a few who use -- well probably abuse -- it.

For my sins, I tried it one and it led to complications and mistakes and
broke my system.

If you think you know what you're doing playing with priorities you're
most likely mistaken!


If you mean repositories for 13.2 should have a lower priority than ones
for 13.1 then WTF ARE YOU DOING? WHY ARE YOU MIXING REPOSITORIES FOR
DIFFERENT SYSTEMS? Quite apart from what ken said about different
numbering schemes, it makes no sense.
