Or differently phrased: Please join the deb-based-but-cross-distro
packaging team at Alioth by subscribing to
post questions like this one there.
Your questions are great. Would be even greater if they were brought up
among all those involved with the actual work (of distro packaging!),
and only summarised here - instead of the opposite.
[detailed qustions skipped - please repost at the Alioth list or repost
if you _really_ want them discussed in detail here rather than there!]

True: Debian *package* repeases (to unstable branch of Debian *distro*
development) much closer matches newest *package* releases from
...which means Debian *derivatives* (like Ubuntu) have an easier time
than ever to create releases matching Sugarlabs releases.
Do not expect any Debian *distro* release to match Sugarlabs releases.
It will be even easier for derivatives in the future, because the
packaging for Debian is intended to get even more complex - supporting
multiple concurrent versions of Sugar parts.
Imagine having the following packages in the future:
sugar0.82-datastore (conflicting with other "datastore" packages)
sugar0.84-datastore (conflicting with other "datastore" packages)
sugar-0.82 (depending on all of Sucrose 0.82)
sugar-0.84 (depending on all of Sucrose 0.84)
Then derivatives can pick the parts they want, and Debian users can
install the environment they want.
