Wrong distribution in APT sources

APT is configured to use the devel distribution on Tails custom [[APT repository|contribute/APT_repository]]. It should have used 0.15-rc1 instead. The latter provides a stable source for package installation whereas packages can be uploaded in devel at anytime, without having received much tests.

If you want to install custom packages, it is recommended that you first replace devel by 0.15-rc1 in /etc/apt/sources.list before updating the package lists.
