Hi Dan,

I understand the problems that this have created, and I can see that
we still have people on IRC complaining about it.

But the server were really on its knees and everything else in it
(including all our source repositories) were just not working at all.
It was a hard decision, but one that had to be made, and soon.

I'm not well versed with PPAs, but if you have an alternative that we
could do and fix the package problem without reusing the same server,
I think we should pursue it.
