I did not. I guess, I'm a bit too new for some of this stuff. Anyway,
I've got sponsor whom will upload some of these package. I'm already
working on some other related and I should upload them to mentors.d.n
pretty soon.
Anyway, if you don't want to package them yourself, until they rich
official repositories, you could use my PPA:

Yes, I forgot about it -- I'm using lzma everywhere as it's best
compression out there. I will change to bzip2, fix other issues and
re-upload packages (:
