[maemo-users] the hell of Maemo repos

In their defense (shocking coming from me, I know...), it's exactly
this kind of nightmare they're trying to prevent. By making people use
the official repositories instead of putting things in their personal
servers all over the Internet, it will make things easier to find and
hopefully more reliable.

That's no consolation when there's a problem with the switch at the
worst possible moment for you, I know.
