I recently added contrib non-free to my sources.list to get rid of errors on boot related to my hardware.

I figured it wasn't necessary for the security lines but notice others have them.

what is the point of adding contrib non-free to the security lines in sources.list?

I have it set up so that I can install a specific package from outside of Debian's unstable branch, without bringing in all of the dependencies from other branches (unless they don't exist in Debian's unstable branch).

For instance, sometimes I use a package from Ubuntu that Debian might not have, but relies on depends that Debian does have (ex. indicator-application).
