Repository Suggestion

Postby DataMan on Wed Aug 17, 2011 6:08 am

Given the ongoing discussion traffic on the various repositories, thought it might be a good idea if someone in the "know" posted all of the LMDE repositories available and a very short description of their intent, limitations etc. This consolidated post might be elevated to a stickie status.

I'm not in the know so I'll defer this to the LMDE Grand Masters :lol: .

I'm surely not a LMDE Grand Master :lol: but can do it. I wrote a german article (Die sources.list in der Praxis - The sources.list in practise), must only translate the descriptions.
