I think it's not a problem of sponsoring...many MOTUs are as well DDs
and if this is not the case, we could ask for sponsorship from pitti,
doko or whoever.
This is really not the problem.

REVU is a nice tool, but the real problem is, then when it comes to
updates, noone is back on that.

Pushing software into ubuntu is not a difficult problem. But who takes
care about it afterwards?

MOTUs/Ubuntu developers who are pushing self made packages taking care
about them afterwards, but drive by contributors don't.

And what is a package worth who nobody cares about?
