I don't know what they are.

I just thought about this.

I've been uploading these packages under the 'main' component name. What if I uploaded the packages under a 'nightly-$(date)' component name instead? In theory if I have my sources.list setup right, the my-app and app-configs would need to change their package name to include the version. It would also mean that they only find each other, right?

I haven't tested this theory out.
