I'm afraid I don't think I am going to get into standard setup from
distutils for a development branch. It's dreadful enough using it ever
on a package-based system even for a stable product, but for a
continually developing product it's a real no-no.  I have 6 Ubuntu
machines. Not a lot in the general scheme of things I know, but it leads
to having to do things 6 times, which is 5 too many.  I am happy to put
a PPA or somesuch into the sources.conf of each of the machines and let
Aptitude do the work, but nothing that involves any more effort.  Sorry.

If Jelmer sets up (or, given how much he hates the PPA system, someone
sets up for him) a way of getting an Intrepid (or soon I guess Jaunty)
package available, then I'll happily install it and try it out.  I would
very much like to try using Bazaar to manage a Git repository, mostly on
the grounds that I still can't get to like Git -- except for its speed
and gitk --all.
