Hi All,

The notes below may apply to some Xubuntu users.  We should get the word out
- perhaps a news story on Xubuntu.org?

In accordance with the technical board decision documented in
the SPARC architecture has been moved to ports.ubuntu.com for Ubuntu
8.04 and beyond. Users of this architecture should take care to update
/etc/apt/sources.list. Old sources.list entries looked like this:

deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ gutsy main restricted

... while new entries should look like this:

deb http://ports.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-ports/ hardy main restricted

A similar reminder goes for PowerPC users, since this architecture was
moved to ports.ubuntu.com in a previous Ubuntu release. If you are still
using archive.ubuntu.com on a PowerPC system, beware that this is likely
to stop working soon and you should migrate to ports.ubuntu.com as

(A similar notice will be present in the Ubuntu 8.04 release notes.)
