/etc/apt is where all the Apt configurations live. The sources.list files tell
apt where it should look for package lists, which in turn tell Apt where the
packages are.

sources.list.d is a directory which contains additional source files so that
3rd party repositories can be used. Ubuntu PPAs are an example of this.
Google also uses them for Earth, Chrome, etc.
