You're right, I just found this out. I came across
http://lists.debian.org/debian-user/2005/06/msg00719.html that cleared
that out, in case somebody else is wondering.

I went to that uri, where a message indicates how to get around this for
that particular source. Good to know nothing may be needed for some other
sources though.

Same here, I began worrying about this yesterday, after about 6 days
without updates showing up. I don't know about xorg packages, as I'm not
using them, but the lack of updates for so long is very unusual.

I did something similar by using netselect-apt and removed all my non-us
sources, and now I get through apt-get update without errors. It remains
to see what's going on with the above.

Thanks a lot!
