As you correctly recognized by the wiki, the final name for new redirector is 
mirror.ppa.trinitydesktop.org. So you can update your apt sources to this 
final name.

Incidentally, this name can also be used for sources like /slavek-banko/axis, 
although it is still true that these additional sources are not on mirror 
sites, so that in case of outage of the primary server will be unavailable.
