The MariaDB 5.2 Ubuntu packages are only available through the 5.2
repositories. I think the easiest way to add the new Oneiric packages
will be to use the mkrepo-ubuntu.sh script to regenerate the entire
Ubuntu 5.2 repo. It appears build-1325 has all of the Ubuntu packages.
Do you think there will be any issues with if I re-generate the entire
Ubuntu 5.2 repo and upload it?

Yes, I'll run some tests with some Ubuntu VMs.

I'm fine with waiting until the next 5.3 release.

Yes. We haven't had a 5.1 release in a while, so I think it is safe to
just wait until we do.
