At the rate upstream (yourself and the other devs) consider it necessary.
Since I saw trial-3 being prepared I thought it was a good time to have a snapshot.
Any heads-up about when to prepare another batch or a link where I can follow it myself
if it happens off-list as well would be appreciated.

I tried to do this in March but because the API was very much in flux I took a break then.
Now things seem to be settling down.

Agreed. The reason it is kept in a personal package archive and not in gutsy proper is to
be able to follow development even after archive freeze and release, so we can have multiple
releases of sugar running on the same Ubuntu release.

thanks a lot! I could only infer part of this from the default jhbuild build-scripts
