xxx.yyy.distupgrade files in /etc/apt/sources.list - what are these?

Chris Green
I have just used do-release-upgrade to upgrade my system to xubuntu
17.10.

It looks as this upgrade has created some oddly named files in
/etc/apt/sources.list, these are:-

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root  78 Dec  3 16:12 owncloud.list.distUpgrade
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root  48 Dec  3 16:12 syncthing.list.distUpgrade

Can anyone tell me what these files are for?

Not sure but owncloud was not packaged by Debian for Debian Stretch
(current stable) which may imply that you don't have a new version for
this application.

It seems to make copies of everything in the sources.list.d folder,
with names like that.

Yes, but why?  I *guess* it might be so it's simple to restore the
non-Ubuntu PPAs by just copying the files back but it would be nice to
know and have it documented somewhere.
