 From your list, looks like I'm all set.  Thank you.

In looking over your list, the only difference I see is that you specify:
dapper-security main restricted universe multiverse
and the original Dapper 6.06 list had separate listings for
dapper-security main
and
dapper-security universe
only.

So the only difference is your inclusion of restricted and multiverse.
Does this affect anything important?

The only other thing that was different in mine was dapper-backports 
main restricted universe multiverse
which I have commented out!  No bleeding edge for me <g>.

Thanks, Larry
