Some comments:

I had a serious problem with updating to the latest R14.0.1 version 
(worth a differrent mail) from 
  deb http://mirror.xcer.cz/trinity-sb raring deps-r14 main-r14

After update Kontact crashed badly, Kmail opened once, was unable to 
send (no response after trying to send) and crashed after killing it 
with "kill ..." constantly. Thus access to my old mails - very bad.

I tried to downgrade by using 

  dpkg --get-selections|grep -i trinity

to save state of the system, than deleting all packages with trinity 
in name. Than replacing mirror.xcer.cz by 

http://ppa.quickbuild.pearsoncomputing.net/trinity/trinity-r14.0.0/ubuntu 

to use

  "apt-get update"
  "dpkg --set-selections < filename"
  "apt-get -u dselect-upgrade"

to downgrade to latest stable version but no access to quickbuild was 
possible. So I searched for mirrors on trinitydesktop.org and in the 
Wiki but was not able to find this information. There is neither a 
search box nor a link to different mirrors in case quickbuild is 
down.

Am I to blind to find this information or must it be added anywhere?
