You appear not to have experimental in your sources.list.  I have googled and 
there appears to be such a thing as an experimental repository.

I didn't reply earlier because I don't really know, since I have never used 
experimental myself.  But I wanted to spare the list from yet another email 
asking exactly the same thing.  (3 so far today).  If people don't reply it 
means one of:

They don't feel inclined to reply
They don't know
They haven't looked at this list since your emails arrived

Repeating yourself doesn't help and can irritate.

It might be worth a visit to www.debian.org to read up on experimental.
