Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I started a hobby project and figured that if there were some reasonably reachable criteria for this, I might as well work in that direction. Tried asking on #ubuntu-app-devel, but the channel seems kinda dead.

Thank you, that's exactly what I wanted. –  Tamás Szelei May 9 '11 at 22:12

With Ubuntu you have a 'better' option. Have a look at this Launchpad page about packaging.

That way you can tell people to add your PPA (explanation and examples here) into Ubuntu Software Center and install it from there.

I know that (and planning to do it), but I'm specifically interested in inclusion in the Universe repository. –  Tamás Szelei May 9 '11 at 20:11
