Introduction

This project aims to provide packages for the Ubuntu Linux distribution which are not available through Ubuntu itself. These packages have the only purpose of providing up-to-date software (mainly for desktop usage) to the users of the stable release of Ubuntu Linux.

The repository provided here is not a substitute of the official packages in any way. It is just a personal interest I have about how to make packages the right way and make them available to people who wish to use software not available on the main distribution and not yet available on the backports tree. This repository is a complement to the official packages.

I always do my best to provide non intrusive and correctly backported packages. The software available here is targeted to the stable release Precise Pangolin and is from one of the following sources:


Can these packages break my Ubuntu

Well, there's always a risk eventhough it is very limited. These packages are tested and used everyday by lots of people (according to traffic stats), myself included and I haven't received a single complain yet. Anyway, I'm just the packager of the software, not the developper and if it fails to work properly on your system, there's little I can do to fix it.

On the matter of upgrade/dist-upgrade, there's nothing to worry about. The extension I add to the packages version is known to be APT compliant. Everything after the tilda sign (~) is ignored by APT for versioning considerations. So, when you dist-uprade to a new version of Ubuntu, you fall under one of these conditions :


Why is the server so slow and lots of timeouts

This repository is hosted on an ISP webpages space. This is a strict minimal service with no warranty of any kind. This does the job but it's slow and the server is mutualised with many other sites from other customers.
