Is there a way to cherry pick packages from a ppa repository you add? That is, to exclude some from updating while including others?
For example, I want just the chromium-browser package from this repository but not the others. So I don't want my
sudo apt-get upgrade to have that ppa's other (besides chromium-browser) packages install over my existing ones, just that one.
I realize this is a license to shoot myself in the foot if I misread dependencies and exclude ones that are needed to ones that I included, but I know for a fact in this case that the other packages are not dependencies for that one.
Is this at all possible? Maybe there is some whitelist/blacklist file or something?
