this is decided by the 'masters of the universe', or MOTU for short, its a community supported opperation that anyone can join, its essentially an organisation that creates packages of software for ubuntu that go into the universe and multiverse repositories,

you can find info on MOTU here: - it also contains help on getting started with contributing software to the MOTU

Can you help with this problem?
