Yes, but not very strong ones: There is still an ordering bug in apt
which makes it read in different parts in an almost nondeterministic
way (e.g. not a state machine, but one depending on history of
configuration). This bites you when you add local mirrors.
The main idea would be to have sources.list empty reserved only for
the users' local configuration changes (local mirrors, own repos
etc.), that is why it is important to have this config file override
There is some workaround by removing some file form apt's cache. I
will look into it and see if it can be done w/o harm. Care to file in
a bug report to nag me?
