Actually, Andriy already took care too to package more recent version of

It's uploaded on mentors.debian.org and need some review before being
accepted. He is already in touch with the Debian python team for them to
help him with this package.

I guess if you intend to work on packaging, best would be to communicate
with Andriy, he also has setup a git repo on github [1] and has some project
for the package. 

That would be a shame to do the same work on debian and ubuntu and having
their packages diverging too much.
