I think this problem could be solved by a packaging cheat sheet :)

As someone you just recently tries to contribute packages to Ubuntu I
think the biggest problem at the moment is that REVU seems to be dead
during freeze.

Of course you can't get something in at the moment anyway and there are
more important tasks at the moment for sure but nevertheless it can take
away some enthusiasm from prospective contributors and makes the process
look more bureaucratic than it actually is.

Best regards,
