There's a difference on how KXStudio repositories are done vs regular
debian/ubuntu repos.
Debian and Ubuntu usually build against a specific version, and don't
usually do backports.
on KX repos I'm starting build all packages the same way (ie, the
generic linux builds), and update software very often (sometimes minutes
after release :D ).

I hate when distros only package new stuff for the their newest,
unreleased/testing/upcoming version and completely ignore the users
running stable versions... :(

(...)

the idea being: a person whose paid responsibility it is to make
us LAUs happy with fresh new packages and, ideally also work with
folks upstream on build sanity issues. Filipe, would you be
willing to supervise such a person, feed them the less fun parts
of what you do and check their work?
