Greetings folks,

Since the sourceforge apt repository is woefully limited to just one
distribution version, and because it is exceedingly slow and times out a
lot, budgetdedicated.com has graciously donated us a blazing fast server
to host the fresh Ubuntu packages.

To use the APT repository, simply edit 'sudo
gedit /etc/apt/sources.list' and then add the following lines, depending
on whether you're running Breezy or Dapper.

Upgrading from the Breezy Wine to the Dapper Wine should be as simple as
changing the word breezy to dapper, not unlike upgrading Ubuntu itself.

For Breezy:
deb http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt breezy main
deb-src http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt breezy main

For Dapper:
deb http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt dapper main
deb-src http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt dapper main

Sometime soon I'll get to work updating the instructions at
http://www.winehq.org/site/download-deb - for now you should ignore
