Indian Debian Repositories (sources.list for sid)

Here is a very basic Apt sources.list configuration example for my GNU/Debian Sid/Unstable machine. The Indian IITM Debian Mirror is the first entry the sources.list file given below, I'll call it my primary repository. It is geographically close (just few hundred miles from here) and only few network hops away.

The Indian GNU/ Debian Linux Mirror is not always fresh so I use another second repository entry which I keep changing according to the Debian Mirror Checker results.

The idea behind having a primary and secondary repository is for added redundancy and also I'll get the latest uploaded version of the (certain) package from the fresh secondary repository. Thus limiting much of the bandwidth traffic to my primary Debian mirror.

The last entry is Christan Marillat's Debian-Multimedia.org which provides the mplayer and its non-free codec's
