Description From 2015-10-21 01:50:09

apt-repo is convenient because it knows many common kinds of the sources of
packages for ALT (and an ALT developer).

It'd be good to bring this convenience to editing non-standard sources.list(.d)
(not the system ones in /etc/apt/). For example, this can be used to edit the 
user's configuration for hasher, which uses APT.

Now, for me a workaround is to use the default hasher's configuration (which
looks into the system /etc/apt/), but whenver I need to switch the sources I do
su and apt-repo. (This interferes with the system configuration and requires
unnecessary priviledges.)

apt-repo-1.2.1-alt1 -> sisyphus:

* Mon Nov 30 2015 Ivan Zakharyaschev <imz@altlinux> 1.2.1-alt1
- added the ability to manipulate arbitrary local sources.list
  by relying on `apt-config` and honoring APT_CONFIG (ALT#31385).
- manpage: fix formattting bugs (closes: ALT#31562).
