Kali 1.1.0a + Deb 8 repos? - sodaphish - 17-05-2015

Anyone had any luck adding Debian 8 repositories to Kali 1.1.0a?

I have built my commercial pentest box (with enterprise licenses for Nexpose, MetaSploit, BurpSuite, and ExploitPack) on it, and I'm thinking I'd like to add the Debian 8 repositories for added functionality (I'd like to be able to do things like write my reports and such on the same box, but Libre Office isn't available on Kali!)

Wondering if anyone sees any downsides to that?

What does the sources.list look like? Isn't Kali based off of testing repositories?

Kali is based on Debian so you can add the repositories to your sources.list.

The downside would probably be about the conflicts between packages.
