Can we have a mention of Slávek's R14 preliminary-stable-builds repository on 
the web-site? 

With a short explanation of what it is, along the lines of: more up-to-date 
versions and other architectures/distros can be found at...and perhaps the 
following from an email of Slávek's:
1) Add the source to sources.list: 
deb *distribution-name* deps-r14 main-r14

2) From some public GPG keyserver download the key and import it into APT:
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver --recv-keys ED1F4884

Explanation of why I thought of it now:

Yesterday someone on one of my local LUGs' mailing list complained that when 
he upgraded to Vivid his DE went to pot - I won't bore you with the details. 
He went on:

Because of this, I thought I'd give trinity a go, but that doesn't 
appear to have a vivid release yet.

It looks like it's not my day today.

I hastily wrote sending my guess at the repository entry for Vivid, which I 
immediately confirmed here and ratified to him.

He replied:

Thanks for that.

I was trying to follow the instructions from and 
using the pearsoncomputing ppa.

Have I been looking in the wrong place?


I used the repository you suggested, and I've installed trinity 
Until you mentioned it I had no idea that there 
were other repos for trinity.

Whilst R14 preliminary-stable-builds has no pretensions to being Stable, it is 
stable and is a valuable resource to us and could be to others.  It seems 
worthy of a mention.
