Well, as you mentioned in your referenced thread:
It also has no multi-arch support which makes maintance for us a pain in the neck each release.
So it would be prudent for me not to get involved - I'm not exactly swimming in free time for this kind of thing. It's easy enough just to manually download and extract each new release.
I would, however, be interested in at least reading of how I would hypothetically go about maintaining packages for a particular distro, if it's not to complex for you to post here (or in a new thread). And maybe this will catch the attention of some other EoL distro users who are more keen on contributing.
A shame Lucid is almost EoL, I think it will remain my favourite for a long time just because of Gnome 2.
