Let’s suppose we want to go back to January, 20th 2020. In /etc/apt/sources.list.d/snapshot.list, we add a date-specific snapshot as a source:

Code: [Select]
deb [check-valid-until=no] https://snapshot.debian.org/archive/debian/20200120T111800Z/ unstable main contrib non-free

Note: the forum mangles urls at times   - the "unstable main contrib non-free" belongs in the URL of the  deb line

No I have not done it yet.  So if it does not work, don't blame me, but I will probably try it in Sid sometime.  Merde, I worked over 80 hours last week.     
peace out
