In the beginning sources.list was a good idea. Right now, it is a point of pain for end users and maintainers. This spec will propose a flexible and versatile replacement, addressing many needs that I have seen as a person who gives support to users, as a third party source for Ubuntu packages and as someone who sees the bugs in apt and pain for mirror admins that this can resolve
