jonas.smedegaard added a comment to T724: PureOS is too stable when auto-migrating only from Debian testing.

@mak you wrote this in a related discussion (in a non-public chat where you gave permission to quote in public):

Laniakea can sync a specific list of packages from any suite into landing, however this is definitely not a smart idea on PureOS as it currently is. We did that mistake on Tanglu in the past. Since PureOS doesn't rebuild all packages synced from Debian, there might be subtle incompatibilities, or synced packages would just flat out not work due to dependency issues. Or the synced experimental packages would break other stuff if not rebuilt against them, GLib is a primary candidate here (but we also had DBus interface incompatibilities occasionally).
So, if we sync stuff from random suites, I would also opt for rebuilding all Debian packages for PureOS, which in turn would require us to do transitions like Debian does (which would mean people would have to monitor and do those).
