A word of warning. These quick and dirty packages and they don't do
all the right things (like gpg authentication) and aren't "debian
compliant" (sorry too little time). However, I have used them on a
number of ubuntu hoary systems (including a custom livecd with all the
scientific python goodies) and haven't had any trouble.

Included below is my sources.list (universe + multiverse + my repo).

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install python-matplotlib-jdh

I have other packages in there too: scipy CVS (scipy-jdh), ipython CVS
(ipython-jdh) and so on.

Thanks for that, it worked just fine on a standard breezy install. How
closely does your repo track CVS? If I see an email saying "fixed in cvs",
how long should I expect it to take for a new package to be available? Not
that it particularly matters, I'm just curious.

Cheers,
