I seriously hope MRG will be ignored here : No one using puppet today
will be interested in the old packages it ships, and as you mentioned in
another post, upstream is *very* active and many people are tracking
the releases very closely (me included).
Well, there's always is the possibility of doing various packaging magic
that would allow parallel install or at least cause a package conflict
which would prevent accidental upgrade. But as I mentioned in my
previous email, not sure if there is much point in doing this for this
particular case any more.
