For a certain transition time, I'm using "oldstable" and "stable"
lines in parallel in sources.list - actually I've been using a 
squeeze package in a wheezy environment for a while (but I'm not
running standard universe so I may have missed the showstoppers).

I agree that the package naming by the Condor team itself is somewhat
non-standard (and, if I'm not mistaken, a deb package by them will
take precedence over a natively built Debian one).

Some time ago I'd been told that Debian source packages wouldn't be
available for a while - it'd be nice to know whether this situation
has changed recently.
