Hi Davide,

Typically Ubuntu gets its packages from Debian, so I would ask there first.

>From the looks of things [1], the package is effectively unmaintained:
there's been no update since 2010, and the 'Problems' section says they're
looking for a new maintainer. Since someone is already building debs (I
assume) for the PPA, it would probably be easiest if they could take over
maintaining the official package in Debian. Then, Ubuntu will sync up with
Debian and get the latest package automatically.

If whoever is building the debs right now isn't an official Debian
maintainer, that's fine: Debian has a mentoring/sponsorship program for
just these situations [2].
