The debs are already in repositories. It is about giving users easy
access to them.

Try reading forum posts or the Scribus page I have mentioned
(http://www.scribus.net/index.php?name=Sections&req=viewarticle&artid=4&page=1).
They are full of descriptions how to add repository, how to add key,
etc. Repeated all over again. And in many cases they go to most common
denominator (modifying /etc/apt/sources.list and using apt-key in
console), because if they describe one application (like Synaptic), then
user might be using different (like Adept).

Now imagine you are user who wants to install application. And he must
take so many difficult steps to achieve simple goal - installing
application.

Or you are an application author which can either depend on his users to
know how to add repository, or he can create description how to do it
once again.

This is the problem I am trying to solve.
