Package: snapshot.debian.org
Severity: important

Advertised "-o Acquire::Check-Valid-Until=false" will impact all sources, and using it
just suspends the protection, potentially leaving the user susceptible to attacks.

Using "deb [check-valid-until=false] http://snapshot.debian.org/archive/..."; achieves
the intended purpose, without the big downfall of the old solution.
