This probably is something to let flow backwards. Though on
the other hand it is more likely to be an issue with a devel

Subject: [PATCH] UBUNTU: (config) Enable getabis to use local package copies

If a package is not (yet) uploaded into the archive it will be
possible to place a copy of the .deb into the home directory and
it will get picked up.
