Definitely. I guess this involves updating all the various twisted-X packages.

If we want to update all twisted Ubuntu packages and not only the -core one, I *think* we need a separate bug filed against each of them. A quick answer on #ubuntu-devel should clear this out.
They have separate source packages? If so, yes we would need separate FFes.
Do you want to do this?
It looks like the only API removal that could raise compatibility issues is:
- The deprecated connectUDP method of IReactorUDP has now been removed. (#4075)
I'm wondering if there's any code in Ubuntu packages relying on it.
How would we find out?

Have you already asked Matthias Klose (the maintainer) if he is interested in updating the packages himself? If not, I'll be glad to help out.
No, I haven't. It'd be great if you could sort this out.
