I did try launch-pads url with lucid and it did complain about
upstart. As I see it this is a third party repo so intrepid doesn't
have to follow EOL of ubuntu?
Also in the future I was thinking about using neatnx but for the
present it seems to unstable for server purposes, I'll be trying out
launch-pad with intrepid tonight.
So I take it the berlios server is down? If so, is there a reason?
