What you have now is a few (never had more than 10) packages from an
earlier branch of the distro. Most of the times they work fine, so this
is basically a non-issue.
Hacking around with release super-epoch and vendors is only going to
cause pain. Application upgrades are usually coded to cope with the
older config files format and migrate them to older ones, this obviously
won't work the other way round.
Seriously guys, is there nothing better to do than hunting around f(x-1)
packages?
