Example file is ok in Parkes. Software-properties is currently blacklisted (see bug #37124).

yes, thats correct sam. i've updated it in bzr, but not bothered to build a package.

dropping priority, since the non-free has been removed.

I copied the example of the new package to /etc/apt. Apt and aptitude are fine, but software-properties-gtk lists -security in Third-Party Software. I'm guessing it should be security.gnewsense.org instead of archive.gnewsense.org.

09:37:53 kgoetz@epicfail:~ $ cat /usr/share/doc/apt/examples/sources.list
# See sources.list(5) for more information, especialy
# Remember that you can only use http, ftp or file URIs
# CDROMs are managed through the apt-cdrom tool.
deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian stable main contrib non-free
deb http://security.debian.org stable/updates main contrib non-free

# Uncomment if you want the apt-get source function to work
#deb-src http://http.us.debian.org/debian stable main contrib non-free
#deb-src http://security.debian.org stable/updates main contrib non-free
09:40:31 kgoetz@epicfail:~ $ dpkg -S $_
apt: /usr/share/doc/apt/examples/sources.list
09:40:45 kgoetz@epicfail:~ $

we will have to patch apts documentation to fix this.
