I will comment after having (re)read the whole thread, which does not
mean I will do it today.

If you provide Git patches (with e.g. `git format-patch origin/master`),
one per each change, it would be less work for us and your name would
directly appear on `git log` output :-)

Applied [1], thank you!

It is difficult to find a better wording, because IMHO the actual one is
correct: it not only populates /etc/apt/sources.lists, but also sets
other APT-related stuff (APT::Install-Recommends [2] and pkg-fso-keyring
for SecureAPT [3]).

We can reflect what is printed when starting/ending this stage,
i.e. changing the description to "Configure APT", is it better?

I, as well, prefer your syntax over the existing one and it is also
present at line 605: both corrected [4].  The rationale is that having a
positive test is always preferable that testing for a non-positive one.

Thx, bye,
