It doesn't really exist.
I created the name, and pointed it at a web site, and tried to work out
how to set it up as an APT repository. I was however largely defeated by
my normal inability to get my head round Debian style packaging and
My googling at the time turned up hilarious documents that listed about
a dozen ways to create a repository, all of which seemed to be insanely
complicated compared to what I'm used to on Fedora (aka dump the
packages in a directory and run createrepo).
The intention was anyway to create a repository for internal use for
distributing packages among our servers rather than to serve external
users though I guess it could do both.
If there is somebody out there that would like to setup that repository
properly and look after building packages and making them available then
I would be very happy to talk to them.
