The packages, reloaded

Most packages are rebuilds, backports and/or updates from latest (or upcoming) LTS or release and thus are following recent debian/ubuntu standards and conventions. The packages are updated to the latest release. Switching back and forth should be no problem if not using the extra options and optimalisations my builds might be providing.

Most builds are now automated, so when a new version is released a cronjob will build it as soon as possible, except if there is any breakage of patches in which case I’ll try to fix is manually as soon as possible. If there is a package out-of-date for too long, please inform me.

Access to the github repository where I store my buildsystem and the packages is restricted, if you want access to review the buildscripts and/or packages please contact me. Contributions are welcome too.

Missing something? please contact me! 😉
