Ubuntu packages for OONI should be on

Currently we have Ubuntu packages built and uploaded to a personal PPA. This means that the only person that can perform uploads is me, and if I get hit by a bus or extraordinary rendition then all the URLs need to change. This is suboptimal.

From time to time it may also be necessary to have backports present for the dependencies, for example a recent version of txtorcon is required for the latest ooniprobe. These would need to be present in the repository for suites that do not have a recent version.

My fingerprint is 1F72 607C 5FF2 CCD5 3F01 600D 56FF 9EA4 E984 6C49 and this key is available in the Debian keyring. (Debian username is irl).

weasel has raised the question: "one question is whether we want new suites for just ooni, or whether we want to put it in the same suites as tor" which may need discussion. I am happy for this to work in either way.

It looks that there will definitely be a need to backport txtorcon for all but xenial, so my preference regarding weasel's question is now leaning towards sharing the existing suites, given that there will be dependencies on things in the main Tor suites (including Tor itself in the case of trusty) and it is more work for users if they have to add two repos not just one.

Still, I may be convinced otherwise and I'm not closed to discussion.

The current PPA has been updated with the latest upstream (1.5.1) along with the required backports. This may help to show the sort of packages that would be uploaded to deb.tpo when this is completed:

weasel has done all the bits he needs to do, now it's up to me to get the packages built and uploaded.
