[SOLVED]MX15/16 repos.

Running M15 fully updated, is there any point in adding the M16 repo to the list?
Does it offer anything beyond what is already supplied by the M15 repo?

There's some artwork, new desktop defaults and slightly newer versions of a handful of packages like hplip & apt-notifier, bumblebee, epson-inkjet-printer-escpr & cryptsetup. It's safe enough.

But there have been no updates to that repo in years so it's not important to have - I don't have it enabled on my own MX-15 install.
