Patched python-apt with the right URLs for Parkes.

This is probably a bug in python-apt. Squeeze's version already has some gNewSense stuff (thanks to Karl), but it needs updating for Parkes. That might be enough to solve the contrib/non-free problem.

The software-properties-gtk program enables the the "contrib" and the "non-free" repository for Debian Squeeze when the 'DSFG-compatible Software with Non-Free Dependencies (contrib)' & 'Non-DSFG-compatible Software (non-free)' options, under the 'Debian Software' tab, are "checked", even though it appears to be "unchecked" -- the "/etc/apt/sources.list" file contains :

deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian/ squeeze contrib non-free

after the above mentioned options are checked.

Sam Geeraerts confirmed[1] this as a bug in the gnewsense-dev mailing list.
