That really doesn't need to be that hard either, especially if the
software is not in Ubuntu or Debian already. A seperate repository

I don't mean hard to do. I mean hard to get past me. Our goal is to keep as close to
Ubuntu as we can, at least until we have developers who are willing to help in the long
term. Then we can consider going further.

The automation of this process is precisely the problem that soyuz
(part of Launchpad) is designed to deal with. The short version of the
story is that it's a *very* hard problem to automate this although on
a package by package basis, bzr will probably do most of the trick.

There will be very few (if any) packages added that aren't in Ubuntu, so
this would be done on a package by package basis.

Currently the only ones I would consider would be gnash and iceweasel.
