APT /etc/apt/sources.list for every Debian release

Debian uses APT as package installation and update manager. This also applies to a distribution (release) upgrade. Usually not much changes in the APT configuration, except the code name. But sometimes, the /etc/apt/sources.list file needs some adjustments for a different release. This is where this list comes to help.
