Given we already have an RT ticket open and a commitment from the
admins to look at it very shortly, I fail to see the urgent need to
use pkgb. It also makes me twitchy having the official documentation
rely on a third party site such as pkgb - even if it is provided in
the best intentions. What happens when/if pkgb goes down for
maintenance? We're adding a level of complexity that isn't required.
There's no massively urgent need to put pkgb links in until the apt:
links work.
