Sounds correct.

At the moment I'm using this repositories in apt:
deb http://archive.debian.org/debian/ jessie non-free contrib main
deb http://ftp.ports.debian.org/debian-ports/ unstable main
deb http://ftp.ports.debian.org/debian-ports/ unreleased main
deb http://ftp.ports.debian.org/debian-ports/ experimental main
deb [arch=all] http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ unstable main contrib non-free

updates seem to work.
I'm right with these repositories?

You should remove the line for jessie, it's not necessary as all packages
from Jessie are also available in unstable, just in newer versions.

Also, please make sure that packages from experimental are correctly
pinned down to 1 - which should happen automatically but I have seen
that not work for Debian Ports in the past - so that experimental packages
are installed only when explicitly requested.

For example:

root@blaauw:~# apt policy ghc
   Installed: (none)
   Candidate: 8.8.1+dfsg1+is+8.6.5+dfsg1-2+b1
   Version table:
      8.8.3-1~exp2 1
           1 http://deb.debian.org/debian-ports experimental/main ppc64 Packages
      8.8.1+dfsg1+is+8.6.5+dfsg1-2+b1 500
         500 http://deb.debian.org/debian-ports sid/main ppc64 Packages

Otherwise, your sources.list looks fine.


My output looks like:

  Installed: (none)
  Candidate: 8.8.1+dfsg1+is+8.6.5+dfsg1-2+b1
  Version table:
     8.8.3-1~exp2 1
1 http://ftp.ports.debian.org/debian-ports experimental/main powerpc Packages
     8.8.1+dfsg1+is+8.6.5+dfsg1-2+b1 500
500 http://ftp.ports.debian.org/debian-ports unstable/main powerpc Packages

so I thing is good.

And I removed the jessie repository.
