Hi,
On the Wireguard site the Debian installation Pin-Priority is at 150 - this
is too high because the official Backports (Stretch-Backports currently)
has a default of 100. This makes certain packages such as kernel images to
be pointed to Unstable instead of Backports.
I believe a number such as 90 should be better choice.

For example for the package linux-image-amd64 we have:

# apt-cache policy linux-image-amd64
linux-image-amd64:
  Installed: 4.18+98~bpo9+1
  Candidate: 4.18+99
  Version table:
     4.18+99 150
        150 http://deb.debian.org/debian unstable/main amd64 Packages
 *** 4.18+98~bpo9+1 100
        100 http://ftp.debian.org/debian stretch-backports/main amd64
Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
     4.9+80+deb9u6 500
        500 http://ftp.debian.org/debian stretch/main amd64 Packages
        500 http://security.debian.org/debian-security stretch/updates/main
amd64 Packages

But if we lower the Pin Priority to 90:

# apt-cache policy linux-image-amd64
linux-image-amd64:
  Installed: 4.18+98~bpo9+1
  Candidate: 4.18+98~bpo9+1
  Version table:
     4.18+99 90
         90 http://deb.debian.org/debian unstable/main amd64 Packages
 *** 4.18+98~bpo9+1 100
        100 http://ftp.debian.org/debian stretch-backports/main amd64
Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
     4.9+80+deb9u6 500
        500 http://ftp.debian.org/debian stretch/main amd64 Packages
        500 http://security.debian.org/debian-security stretch/updates/main
amd64 Packages

Hi Laszlo,

Thanks for pointing this out. Presumably this is a suggestion for the
pin priority listed on the install page of the webpage? Or some place
else? I've CC'd dkg on this email to ack the change.

Hi,
Yes, it is for the webpage's install section.

I agree with Laszlo that 90 would be a better choice for pinning
unstable.

thanks for the fix, Laszlo!
