Re: [trinity-devel] Devuan ASCII & TDE ... call for devs :-)

Hi Nik,

Devuan Ascii is the equivalent of Debian Stretch. Currently, TDE official 
packages for Debian Stretch are not yet available. For now, the only 
option is to use Preliminary Stable Builds repository. And the same 
repository can also be used for Devuan - packages for Debian can be used 
on Devuan without modification. See:

  https://wiki.trinitydesktop.org/DevuanInstall
  https://wiki.trinitydesktop.org/Preliminary_Stable_Builds

There is one new information: Now you can use the mirror of Preliminary 
Stable Builds repository located on the official TDE server! Instead of 
http://mirror.xcer.cz/trinity-sb you can now use 
http://mirror.ppa.trinitydesktop.org/trinity-sb

Is this information sufficient for this moment?

Cheers
