A gnewsense-volatile archive has been added to gNewSense/metad (the
development version of gNewSense that provides support for PowerPC and
Mipsel/Yeeloong).  It can be used with the following URI:

  deb metad main

What is gnewsense-volatile?

Some packages aim at fast moving targets, such as spam filtering and virus
scanning, and even when using updated data patterns, they do not really work
for the full time of a stable release. The main goal of volatile is allowing
system administrators to update their systems in a nice, consistent way.

So gnewsense-volatile will only contain changes to stable programs that
are necessary to keep them functional.

  The DRM opt-in fallacy: "Your data belongs to us. We will decide when (and
  how) you may access your data; but nobody's threatening your freedom: we
  still allow you to remove your data and not access it at all."
