I have built a repository for testing purposes that you are invited to use if you are sufficiently brave.

To use the repository, add

deb binary/ 

to your /etc/apt/sources.list and update apt or aptitude or do a reload in synaptic. Then look for entries under skinny.

Note that because I am not using digital signing (yet?), apt,aptitude, synaptic, etc. will warn you that the skinny packages cannot be authenticated. The risk in installing these unauthenticated packages is no greater than the risk of installing a tar or other package that you may download off the Web. But if you are feeling extra cautious, you can download the packages only (without installing) then inspect the code manually to verify that there hasn’t been a third-party interception.
