badgerports is a software repository for use with Ubuntu Linux 10.04. Whilst on the whole it is a good idea to use the software provided with your Linux distribution, there are sometimes bugs or major software updates that cannot be included for operational reasons. badgerports is a home for a number of wayward software packages, to enhance the Ubuntu experience.
The primary purpose of badgerports is to provide recent versions of the Mono framework, and associated packages such as F-Spot, Banshee, and Monodevelop. Suggestions for other packages to include are welcome, but don't be offended if I decline for whatever reason.
badgerports 10.04 is now closed, these packages are made available for historical purposes.
badgerports is maintained by Jo Shields, one of the main packagers for Mono in Debian GNU/Linux and Ubuntu Linux. Package compilation is provided by the Launchpad PPA system.
