How to update package from Debian-sid?

Asked by Jose Luis Blanco-Claraco

Hi all,

I maintain a package in Debian and I wonder if there's any procedure for me to trigger an update in all Ubuntu Jaunty/Karmic/Lucid/Maverick so the newer packages got into these distributions.

Do you also have in Ubuntu a "mentor"-based system?
Where or who should I head each time I want to do such an update from Debian-sid? Or, do you recommend me to upload the .deb sources (the .dsc, .orig files, etc.) somewhere else instead?

Thanks in advance!
