add cdrom adds it to the end of sources.list

Bug #162395 reported by Serhiy Kachaniuk on 2007-11-13
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
software-properties (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Add cdrom adds it to the end of sources.list. apt-cdrom in contrast adds it to the beginning.

Adding cdrom source to the beginnning makes sense as apt uses sources ir order they appear in that file and thus cdrom will newer be used for official packages as http:// links to archive will be used instead

Also, there is no way to move up or down sources in third party sources tab
