I am not sure what the actual problem with Dotdeb is, but that's a
little beside the point. I don't judge the quality of the repositories
included in debian-database.org, one should always be careful installing
software from sources one doesn't know or trust.

If a repository has a good collection of packages (backports from
testing/unstable or otherwise) it is eligible for inclusion in my db.
