Ah, yes. Thanks for catching that!
The logic (if curious) is that *-src suites are used for development:
All packages at debian.jones.dk are compiled inside a chroot containing
the least possible packages (I use cowbuilder for this, or pbuilder when
Copy-On-Write fails). When a plain Debian suite (a so-called "clean"
environment) cannot satisfy build-dependencies, I add one or more *-src
suites, and place the resulting binary packages separately to indicate
that they are "contaminated" - i.e. not only the package itself is
unofficial but it was also compiled using unofficial build-dependencies.
If anyone is interested in doing similar stuff, I maintain some wrapper
scripts for cowbuilder and pbuilder making it _very_ easy to handle
multiple clean and custom build environments.
