Service Shutdown

Due to a continued lack of funding and difficulty sourcing an Internet
connection with sufficient bandwidth to sustain all of the services
currently offered, the Trinity Desktop Project is regretfully announcing
the temporary shutdown of the following services to the general public:

 * PPA access to nightly builds for Debian and Ubuntu
 * Weekly LiveCD builds

While work will continue to secure a faster Internet connection, it
appears that a physical move of the server cluster will be required; as a
result, it will be several months at minimum before the above services can
be reinstated.  Moving all services to the cloud is not an option for
multiple reasons including high recurring costs, security concerns, and
the usage of highly complex software (Launchpad) that cannot be feasibly
hosted on such a system.

It is hoped that by temporarily disabling the listed services, reliable
access to more important services (such as the official release PPAs, main
Web site, Wiki, and GIT repositories) will be restored.

Thank you all for your continued support!
