IMHO this touches another burning topic:  Its not that we do not want to
provide some PPA equivalent - its just that we do not realise it.  I do
not remember how many years ago we talked about bikesheds (and
obviously we even found an extremely speaking name). 

I do not want to trigger another PPA-bikeshed thread but may be some
analysis why we need to take so much time to realise good ideas (i.e.
I consider a Debian release another very good idea where we take too
long) and what we can possibly do to shorten that time span.

Kind regards
