Ideally, distros will keep up with what their downstreams do, but the
reality is quite different:
When upstreams try to reach their downstreams and pass the most
important messages, things go a bit better, but that won't scale.
The telepathy guys are already working into backporting the relevant
packages to their Lucid PPA.
That said, once people knew that PyGI was working on Maverick, they
started trying to port their apps there, with some success already as
this ticket shows:
