Nice job. I can sponsor the upload to Debian, if that helps (I guess
once all packages are in Debian we can request a sync, and it probably
makes sense as anyway we want to eventually have them in Debian as

I didn't review all the packages yet, but there is one problem with the
python-twisted-core binary package:

~% dpkg -c python-twisted-core_10.0.0-0\~ppa1\~lucid1_all.deb|grep _initgroups.so
-rw-r--r-- root/root     15876 2010-03-08 15:27 ./usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/twisted/python/_initgroups.so

The package should be architecture-independent (Architecture: all) and
not ship compiled binaries for C extensions like initgroups, which
should go in the python-twisted-bin package. Otherwise the package will
be built on a random builder and the resulting arch-dependent binary
module will be shipped to all architectures.

Fwiw I uploaded the core twisted source package to Debian today.
