Thanks Jason...
I was trying to be too clever with symlinks for my own good and make
it work also with the original posting.

You should be able to access now thru either the original post:

deb http://www.debian.org/~mblevin/gnome-apt ./

Or thru the following (which will be used for all future releases):

deb http://www.debian.org/~mblevin/apt gnome-apt/
