hello vilde,

according to agaida it was a naming issue, that caused a lot of unwanted installations.
But no worries, the devs now have their experimental playgrounds elsewhere.

I don't even know why I had siduction experimental enabled in my repo, I have debian experimental and probably that's what I wanted. Occasionally I install something from debian eperimental, for example iceweasel.
