Congrats for getting it out!

I'd just like to let everyone know that I have made packages for Ubuntu Gutsy
and Hardy available from my Launchpad PPA (personal package archive), available
from [1]. These releases are intended only as a band-aid for the impatient
until the official packages come out, or until I have time to talk to the
appropriate people; I haven't tested them thoroughly - all the usual
disclaimers apply ;). That said, they *do* appear to be working fine
from my (very) limited testing.

To install, add the lines given at [1] that correspond to your release to your
/etc/apt/sources.list file, then perform an `apt-get update' and `apt-get
dist-upgrade' or `apt-get install darcs' as appropriate.

It appears that the same package builds on Debian unstable (sid), but I
don't have a system available to test it on.

Please let me know of any problems, and I will endeavour to fix them. I
am on IRC as Laney.

Thanks all,
