Bug#595801: snapshot.debian.org: apt (by default) complains about expired Release files

Package: snapshot.debian.org
Severity: minor

After adding a snapshot.debian.org entry to my sources.list (as
described on the homepage), apt then complained during update about the
Valid-Until in the Release file:

	E: Release file expired, ignoring
	(invalid since 10d 4h 40min 14s)

Since the snapshot.debian.org source is obviously temporary, I just
worked around this with:

	sudo aptitude -o 'Acquire::Check-Valid-Until=false' update

(not sure if there's a better workaround, but this works)

I guess something along these lines should be mentioned in the paragraph
about adding apt sources?
