Is this a request for sponsorship into Debian or into Ubuntu or both?

That repo has a lot of packages, do you have at least a list of source packages

I see for example higher versions than in your repository, shipped in
debian experimental. I.e. sugar 2.0.1-1~exp1 is that not ready? or
what is it? Should 0.116 be packaged instead? Or like should we sync
sugar stuff from experimental?

I'd rather prefer getting everything working with python3 correctly in
either debian experimental or debian unstable and syncing from there.
Is there anything stopping from dropping python2 support in unstable?
