Well, that's not actual news ;)

No.  If there is a debian/ubuntu maintainer willing to pick this up,
he/she is free to do so.  If there are any problems with the debian/
tree, he/she is also free to file tickets in the QGIS TRAC.

I see the debian/ tree in our repository primarily as a means to produce
packages for launchpad for our users and for my local use - and I'm
going to keep it up-to-date for that purpose.

I will support any efforts to get this into Debian/Ubuntu again, but I
don't plan on doing it myself (ie. jumping through NM hoops).
