Using a Personal Package Archive (PPA), you can distribute software and updates directly to Ubuntu users. Create your source package, upload it and Launchpad will build binaries and then host them in your own apt repository.

Here is a detailed explanation.

How do I create a package that contains pictures that copy themselves directly to the "Backgrounds" folder? –  Jebeld17 Oct 24 '11 at 16:17

@Jebeld17 You seem to be asking different questions here, you should probably ask a separate question for packaging wallpapers –  Jorge Castro Oct 24 '11 at 17:07
    
FWIW I was able to active my PPA before I signed the code of conduct. –  Sparhawk Apr 3 at 4:30

You will need a Launchpad.net account to create a PPA. Just click on your user on Launchpad (click on your name on the upper left) and create a PPA. You may have to first sign the Code of Conduct and have a GPG key registered with your account.
