apt should share the same sources entries as cron-apt

Bug #293685 reported by Alon Swartz on 2008-11-04
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
TurnKey Linux
Fix Released

Bug Description

- cron-apt is configured to use the sources file /etc/apt/security.sources.list
- apt uses /etc/apt/sources.list

$ grep ^deb sources.list
    deb http://archive.turnkeylinux.org/ubuntu hardy main
    deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu hardy main
    deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu hardy-security main
    deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu hardy-updates main

$ grep ^deb security.sources.list
    deb http://archive.turnkeylinux.org/ubuntu hardy-security main
    deb http://archive.turnkeylinux.org/ubuntu hardy-security universe
    deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu hardy-security main
    deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu hardy-security universe

according to the above configuration, doing a manual update would not include the source entries as an automatic update would.

recommended fix:
    - move both sources.list and security.sources.list into /etc/apt/sources.list.d
    - remove the hardy-security entires from sources.list (apt will use /etc/apt/sources.list.d/*.sources.list)
    - update /etc/cron-apt/config
