At this time your feed is loaded as static but users can disable such
static feed and subscribe to.
I agree it would be nice to be able to switch static to dynamic. Patches
would be very welcome :)

CC'ing d-mentors:

If anyone wants to take a look, review and possibly upload:
Even DMUA flag would be really appreciated.
For impatient sponsors who want to upload during next 5 minutes, this
ubiquity version is supported by iceweasel >=3.6 so it should be in

* Package name    : ubiquity
  Version         : 0.6-1
  Upstream Author : Mozilla Labs Team
* URL             : https://mozillalabs.com/ubiquity/
* License         : MPL-1.1/GPL-2/LGPL-2.1
  Section         : web

It builds these binary packages:
xul-ext-ubiquity - experimental interface based on natural language input

The package appears to be lintian clean.
The upload would fix these bugs: 594531 (ITP)
My motivation for maintaining this package is: I use it daily.

I added a feed maintained by DD Filippo Giunchedi [1] which provides
Debian-related commands such as shortcuts to bugs, packages, buildd and
wiki searches.
