I should explain how it works.

Ubuntu is released every 6 months and at the beginning of the 6 month cycle they sync packages from Debian. Ubuntu don't package tuxpaint themselves, although they may patch Ben's package.

Tuxpaint 0.9.21 was released in June. Ubuntu Karmic was released in October 2009, and had Debian upload freeze in July.

Tuxpaint 0.9.21 was uploaded to Debian in August 2009 - too late for Karmic but it made it into Lucid which is the LTS due in April 2010.

Ubuntu keeps the versions of packages it ships with, unless there are major bugs.

it's synced from Debian, but not backported.

Wow.  0.9.21 came out in early June.  How many months do they need,
or was it just a matter of not having enough volunteer/employee
bandwidth to handle it?  (Or should we be pinging them when we release?)
