As you say, there just wasn't any interest in the 5.0 distribution
so I had to abandon it.

I'm still keen to do a UK/EU distribution and there's still a
webpage on the site for people to pre-register for future releases.
If interest reaches a critical mass (which is around 250) then I'll
start doing releases again. This isn't something I'm doing for a
living anymore (I'm back contracting) so there needs to be enough
subscribers to cover the production costs but as long as I can
break even then I'm be happy to provide this as a service.
