There are a few apps I use which slapt-get says it can't find.  Gpodder and Exail for starters.  Are these simply not avalible, short of compiling, or are there other repositories I can install?

Gpodder is available in the repositories, but you will have to have testing enabled.
Just make sure to upgrade the python version to 2.5.2-i586-2vl60, or you will get an error.
  I could not find Exail.

Vasm >Utilities > Gslapt > Edit > Prefernces > Sources.  5th one down is testing.....I believe that's what you're looking for. I'm sure there's a way via command line to do it also but I'm not sure about that one. 

Edit:  Just checked, after enabling testing "gpodder 0.16.1-i586-1vl60" is there.
