Some FAQ on this topic:
Q: Why don't you use Launchpad's PPA?
A: Last time I looked into it (together with some Launchpad engineers at
past UDS), the PPA module was too tightly integrated with other
Launchpad parts to be deployable on Debian infrastructure
I don't think it is currently possible to use Launchpad's PPA to build against non-Ubuntu distributions (or that is the impression I get anyway).
Would really like to see a PPA based system that supports building against Debian stable and unstable.
