Intrepid has newer versions of those (0.45.3-1 and 1.13-1). We don't
generally put new versions into stable releases. Instead, we backport
specific patches to fix important bugs (see [1]). Is there anything we
should particularly fix in hardy?

Thank you for the offer! So far we didn't really "maintain" those
packages in Ubuntu, because they "just work" (which is really a credit
to your Debian maintenance :) ). So a great thing for you to do is to
poke Ubuntu to sync a new version of these packages if you upload
something important to Debian, if the DebianImportFreeze is over for
the current development release. Preferred method is to file a sync
request ("requestsync" script in the ubuntu-dev-tools package), or
just ask on #ubuntu-devel or this list.

Thank you!
