Programs backported from Ubuntu/Debian

PPA description

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:n-muench/programs-ppa

All LTS packages have been moved here (for easier rebuilding):
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:n-muench/programs-ppa2

All packages in the repo are backported from (or based on) either Debian and/or Ubuntu Utopic repos.

THIS PPA MIGHT BREAK OTHER PACKAGES (it shouldn't (since they're backported with minimal changes), but someone recommended that I should note it anyways)

Debian/Ubuntu Versioning:
   -Built using existing Ubuntu/Debian packaging (check my changelog for more
   -Any MAJOR bugs should be sent to be me directly (don't file bug report
    with the developer (or Debian/Ubuntu))
   -Package has been backported from Debian (depending on program, Ubuntu
    will autosync release with Debian)
   -Bugs may be reported to Debian, but check my changelog for any
    additional information
   -Package backported from next Ubuntu release. When upgrading to next
    release, PPA package will be overridden by Ubuntu Main's package
   -Bugs may be reported to Ubuntu (using Launchpad), check my changelog for
    any additional information before doing so.

-cURL: Needed for libofx
-rtmpdump: Needed for cURL
-wxwidgets3.0: Needed for FileZilla (Starting at 3.9.x)

-gnutls28: Needed for WireShark (Starting at 1.10.8)
-gmp-6.0.0: Needed for gnutls28

All packages here are either backported from Debian unstable/experimental and/or Ubuntu Utopic, I made no other changes to the packages with the exception of:
-Notify-OSD: Has a patch move it to where it was for Jaunty

-PPA is all green.


-(New) Calibre 2.x: On Hold until Utopic releases (needs newer Qt packages,
 which if installed in Trusty, will break the system)
