I set up this repository a while ago, but it broke, and now I think I
have it all running again. I'm still running the builds manually so
they're not quite "nightlies" but it's been running reliably, so I'm
almost ready to move it to an automated script.
This is a PPA that contains frequent builds of Inkscape directly from
the trunk branch. It creates a separate package called "inkscape-devel"
that you can install while you have stable version of Inkscape installed
as well. Hardy is still a bit broken, so this is for people on Ubuntu
releases 8.10 or newer.
Currently, this will have pre2 plus other patches and translations that
have been put in trunk since it's release.
