What you see on the server is the result of an attempt to add
Ubuntu/Debian toolchain packages. The plan is to integrate building them
into my normal toolchain building process.
However, so far, this attempt has stalled for various reasons, some of
them being technical and some of them being personal (Primarily lack of
time - Me being busy with other topics and holidays interferring).

toolchain yum repositories, but is still around for some older

Well, so far, the Ubuntu/Debian repos have been deliberately "unannounced".
Consider them to be non-existing until announced ;)
