Ciao

se qualcuno avesse ancora debian-multimedia.org tra i suoi repository: 
attenzione che il dominio  scaduto e non si sa da chi sia stato
registrato; se dovessero metterci dei deb "irregolari" apt 
avvisa che non sono firmati correttamente, ma bisogna fare attenzione 
a non ignorare l'avviso.

expiration of debian-multimedia.org
===================================
debian-multimedia.org was an unofficial, popular repository of Debian 
packages. After a discussion last year, the service moved to another domain.
Debian offered to cover costs for the transfer of the debian-multimedia.org 
domain to prevent it from expiring and falling into a domain squatter's hands 
(or worse).  Unfortunately, the debian-multimedia.org maintainer decided not
to cooperate with Debian, and let the domain expire. The domain has now 
apparently been registered again by someone unknown to Debian (TTBOMK).
This is a good example of the importance of the use of cryptography to secure 
APT repositories (and of the importance of not blindly adding keys).
