Hi all,

I have for you some informations about alternative apt 
source 'preliminary-stable-builds'.

1) Because the release of Jessie as a new stable series is approaching, I 
extended the platforms for which are packages built. Besides usual amd64, 
i386, armel and armhf.

  a) mips => 100% done
  b) powerpc => due to a technical problem with qemu-user are not built
  c) arm64 => 100% done - someone has such hardware? We are ready :)

2) On the user wish I added build for Ubuntu 14.04 (Trusty) on PowerPC 
platform (Ubuntu Ports) => 100% done.

3) Finally, preliminary packages for upcoming Ubuntu 15.04 (Vivid) are 
available - the usual platforms amd64 and i386.

And, of course, are continually updated packages :)
