What I do for Wt ( http://packages.debian.org/source/sid/witty ) is providing the latest version in Debian, which will later come to Ubuntu, but also I have:

- an Ubuntu PPA ( https://launchpad.net/~pgquiles/+archive/wt ) where I provide the latest version of Wt for all the versions of Ubuntu Canonical still supports (currently: 10.04, 12.04, 12.10 and 13.04)

- an OpenSuse Build Service repository ( http://redmine.webtoolkit.eu/projects/wt/wiki/Installing_Wt_on_Debian ) where I provide the latest version of Wt for the latest stable version of Debian

Users who want stability use the packages from the official Debian/Ubuntu repository.

Users who want to use the latest version use the packages from the Ubuntu PPA / OpenSuse Build Service

This model has been working very well for me for years and users are happy. Sadly, there are no Debian PPAs and I'm forced to use the OpenSuse Build Service, which I don't really like (no dput, censored main archive, etc).
