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.

we will have to patch apts documentation to fix this.
