Packages in the /snapshots directory might be based on a development branch and
are not intended for production use. Please be extra careful to back up your
system before installing them. Better still, try them in a virtual container
rather than on your server!


Copies of our latest packages are provided in the /misc directory for your 
convenience, if you do not wish to use our apt repository. You can also find 
the airtime-easy-setup and newscoop-easy-setup packages there.
