Hello,

I setup a PPA today for bitcoin, with packages built for lucid and maverick.  Full details are on this other post:

Creating a Bitcoin client that fully implements the network protocol is extremely difficult. Bitcoin-Qt is the only known safe implementation of a full node. Some other projects attempt to compete, but it is not recommended to use such software for anything serious. (Lightweight clients like Electrum and MultiBit are OK.)

Great!  I'd like to see this good work make it back into mainline bitcoin; please talk with the other improve-the-build-process efforts and submit some patches.

How often do you get the chance to work on a potentially world-changing project?

Hi,
Since Ubuntu is most popular desktop linux distro why there are no repository or even builds of bitcoin client? I think someone should start to create something like repo with bitcoin's builds, better ppa on launchpad. It will be so cool to have native payment system in ubuntu, maybe one day bitcoin will be included in the main repository

the main problem is bitcoin seems to require non-standard conflicting version of wxwidgets.
