Yes, based on your comments, it sounds like there is a place for a 
separate UbuntuGIS email list.
For all those interested in Ubuntu packaging, please join at:

I suggest that our next steps are:
1. Update https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuGIS and 
so that a new user can easily determine the status of the project, and 
then subscribe themselves to the email list.

2. Send out a broader announcement to OSGeo lists and past UbuntuGIS 
members inviting them to join up.

3. Start getting the real work done.

On a personal note, while some of my team at LISAsoft have been involved 
in LiveDVD packaging, I'm quite new to the packaging area. So please 
don't be shy in talking up with any advice you may have.
