I have not been using the thermometer up to now when looking for
something to do, but that is probably because I tend to jump to the QA
page from the PTS, and to the Maintainer Dashboard from there (and
probably because I have a package that doesn't really fit into a blend).
But the thermometer is now bookmarked! I can see that it has the
advantage of showing relevant unpackaged applications (one of which I
have begun working on again).

Of course it would be great to have the Ubuntu GIS PPAs (Bas mentions on
other thread) if we can work that in eventually. But I like the addition
of the latest Ubuntu development release (currently vivid) because I do
like to help out every six months with syncs and merges for the Ubuntu
releases (at least when there isn't a parallel Debian release :-).
