Alternative APT source 'R14 preliminary stable-builds'

Hi all,

in light of the recent problems on the build-farm, I used the fact that 
ever since work on v3.5.13-sru I have the automated preparation of source 
packages and at the same time I have a private builder where I am doing 
the test building, and where I have available all supported Debian and 
Ubuntu distributions (for example, see my test for building on Ubuntu 
Trusty). I optimize my production line for building packages, so now I 
have ready alternative APT source containing packages for all supported 
Debian and Ubuntu distributions.

The same packages will be in the future uploaded to my PPA on build-farm, 
where they will serve as maintanance releases for R14. Similarly, as was 
my PPA for v3.5.13-sru branch. Therefore, this apt source I call 'R14 
preliminary stable-builds'. In order that the packages were readily 
available, they are synced to my primary mirror.

What to do if you want to use it?

1) Add the source to sources.list: 
deb *distribution-name* deps-r14 main-r14

2) From some public GPG keyserver download my key and import it into APT:
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver --recv-keys ED1F4884

3) Update the packages in such a way as you used to do it :)

I hope it will be helpful.
