I don't know what mechanism would lead to discovery. The only way I've
found Ubuntu PPAs is by visiting Launchpad pages for projects, or by
referral from someone.
The latter mechanism is equal to the way we mention the Sugar Sweets
repository on the Sweets page on the Sugar Wiki.
(I think Sugar moving to Launchpad to be a large change without enough
benefit to outweigh the cost. I maintain Netrek with some Launchpad
involvement. A hope I had was that it would cause more volunteers to
appear ... but that never happened.)
