This is correct, and the backports PPA has it as well. We had tapped
Simon Quigley to upload & sponsor the new packages, but he might be
busy. If you want to go for it, have at it.

I aggree. Apport won't even let a bug report be processed for a package
that is in a PPA, as far as I know.

This is another package I was having Simon sponsor, but he hasn't
looked at it yet either. The other packages are pretty much bugfixes
since they're noot new packages, but this one would be brand new. If we
can get it in before feature freeze, I think when falktx does the final
release of 2.0, we might be able to get it in as a bugfix. The version
packaged is 2.0-RC3.

There is one more new package in the bunch, and that's grub2-themes-
ubuntustudio. It's a fork of grub2-themes-ubuntu-mate, and some of the
newer versions of packages in -look depend on it.

So, if you want to work on that (now that you're back from yet another
trip you globetrotter!), that would be very much appreciated.
