I am not a Ubuntu developer, but I would say no.  First, 15.10 is going to 
be released very soon now, so it would be impossible.  Packages have been 
frozen for quite some time already.  You have two options:

1. Wait for 16.04 which is when it will probably make it into Ubuntu 
officially.  They pull all packages from Debian testing at the beginning of 
the release cycle, so probably early next month.

2. Create a PPA and write blog posts about it so search engines will find it.

Regardless, this is not a developer list, it's a user support list, so 
you're probably asking in the wrong place.
