Hi all,

I recently came across this issue [1], and Glyph commented about official 

We're using Ubuntu Hardy and created packages for Twisted 8.2.0, as Ubuntu LTS 
is our platform of choice. Those packages were accepted by their official 
maintainer (Matthias Klose, doko at debian.org) and uploaded to Ubuntu Jaunty 
and Debian unstable.

Sadly, the official packages now use python-central (>=0.6.11), which isn't 
available in Hardy, so we'll have to stick to the packages in our PPA [2] In 
any case, we'll update them when Twisted 9.0 is released, but I think it 
would be better to upload them to a PPA repository officially approved by the 
Twisted team.

Anyway, it would be great to have recent packages of Twisted for distributions 
that offer some kind of long term support contracts (Ubuntu, RHEL, etc.), but 
that tend to get a bit outdated.
