PPA description

This PPA contains a variant of the xserver with background initialization disabled, compiled for karmic and lucid. For more information, check https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-x-swat/+archive/xserver-no-backfill

If a new release of an official package will be uploaded to the main repository, that new version will have higher priority than the packages in this PPA. Please drop me a note in case this happens for karmic since I upgraded all of my systems to Lucid and will probably miss this.

Packages for Lucid are currently in the build queue and to be expected soon. See "PPA statistics" below for a prediction when the packages are supposed to be built.
