This is making the rather uncertain assumption that each version can be built with the last (not true with all 1.9.x versions though maybe more effort is being made post 2.0.0).

the problem is that ubuntu has a general policy against binary uploads (because it ensures that the packages can indeed be built on systems other than the maintainers private system). Only very few people seem to be able to override this and those people seem very busy and not to really care when i ask them to do it for freepascal.
