as a matter of fact, I have a ppa that has recent twisted packages[1].
The packages I put up there are actually based on upstream Ubuntu
packages and "just work" for me, but for an official ppa, I'd guess they
could use a little work and especially testing.
I can't say I'm an expert on packages or ppas, but I'm happy to offer
any advice if needed.
For starters, if you think about making this an official twisted
packaging project, I'd suggest switching from launchpad ppas to obs[2]
as it offers a much wider range of supported distributions
(Ubuntu/Debian/Fedora/CentOS) and a very powerful command line client.
Don't worry about the name, it's really an all purpose building tool,
it's open source and can therefore be run as a private instance.
