If there is user demand for it, and packagers willing to provide security 
updates for a few more months, I'm willing to host the packages built. All 
with the understanding that:

1) I don't have the time or the skills to set up a full flexed build 
2) All packages are made available "as is" and may break the users system, 
destroy their homework, offend mothers in law, or kick their pets;
3) No promises on availability other than on a best effort base.

Lemme know should there be interested takers :)
