Package: amprolla
Version: chimaera


Currently, if the chimaera-backports repository is enabled, packages
from there have priority over those in the main repository because the
Release file for chimaera-backports is missing the following lines:

NotAutomatic: yes
ButAutomaticUpgrades: yes

The beowulf-backports repository works properly since those lines are
present in its Release file.

Thanks in advance,
Jorenz Paragas
