qgis-unstable-ubuntugis-jef is just for test builds.  After the builds
succeeded they were copied to unstable-ubuntugis.

So it's virtually impossible that the packages in unstable-ubuntugis work any
different than those from qgis-unstable-ubuntugis-jef. They are the same.

You probably didn't consider that the qgis-unstable-ubuntugis-jef repository
depends on unstable-ubuntugis.   So you need the latter in any case.   And as
it already contains the packages from qgis-unstable-ubuntugis-jef, you don't
need my test repository at all.

But just using qgis-unstable-ubuntugis-jef will probably give you the right
qgis, but some older dependencies from plain ubuntu - looks like that doesn't
work.  But that was never intended anyway.

If you don't want ubuntugis the qgis unstable ppa[1] has packages that work
with plain ubuntu.
