Re: Sources.list Question

This WFM (works for me):
add the extra dist/section
install package
remove the section

You will be left with your package.
Repeat if you need to upgrade just that package, either by install it
again, or by [dist-]upgrade with regular sources.list entries just
prior to upgrading for that package too...
