Sorry to disappoint you, but 2.30.2 is already in lucid-proposed (and
maverick) and should hit lucid-updates as soon as the associated bug
reports will be checked (LP: #561319, #469459, #581759, #581885,
#564766, #444832, #380643, #587924, #592075). You are welcome to confirm
those are fixed in the new version.

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MOTU/GettingStarted is a good start, and for
more interactive question/answer, you can join on IRC (you can use
empathy to connect) on freenode/ubuntu network #ubuntu-motu and ask your
You should find all the support to get help from there.
