Yes, anyone with some interest in .deb packaging can help.

Debian POV: Someone needs to volunteer packaging "sugar-etoys-activity". 
Drop an email to debian-olpc-devel at lists.alioth.debian.org .

Ubuntu POV: Someone needs to volunteer hacking[1] together a sugar 
activity package until a Debian package can be adopted. More info at 

I recommend helping as "upstream" as possible instead of only locally 
for Ubuntu. YMMV.

[1] I do not mean to say that Ubuntu packaging in principle is any worse 
quality than packages adopted from Debian. Just that Ubuntu generally 
seems to generally favor passing on the grunt work to Debian and treat 
locally packaged stuff as temporary, i.e. hacks.
