Quality Assurance for the PPA

I've been hearing from a few people that recent updates in the PPA may
have caused problems for users.

I personally think we should, once we have more people who are part of
the Ubuntu Sugar Package set (~ubuntu-sugar-uploaders), point people to
a PPA in that restricted team, and upload to an "unstable" PPA
maintained by ~sugarteam.

In the interim, I'd prefer if we'd create a separate PPA for direct
uploads, and have new uploads go there. We can then test them and
collect feedback, copying over the packages to the main PPA (which has a
lot of users) when we're verified that the packages won't cause problems.

When possible, we should avoid using the PPA in general. It is
preferable to do SRUs and backports to stable releases through official
Ubuntu channels unless we *have* to ship something in the PPA. (Browse,
for example)

Does this make sense?
