It follows with `apt-get install emacs22`. The packages are available
now, I'm using them currently myself with Gnus/CVS :). Please note, the
packages are built for the `gutsy` distribution, which will become
ubuntu 7.10. It is corrently not recommended to use that version for
production use. I will update the packages in my PPA until it gets
accepted into gutsy properly.

Sorry for not being more clear in the first place.
