Anyway, it would be great to have recent packages of Twisted for distributions that offer some kind of long term support contracts (Ubuntu, RHEL, etc.), but that tend to get a bit outdated.
It's worth mentioning that someone has recently stepped up to fix ticket 1696 after I'd ignored it for Far Too Long, and very soon it should be possible to build Twisted RPMs for RHEL just by running "./setup.py bdist_rpm" in a fresh checkout.
For Debian-based distros, I hear there's a tool called "debhelper" that apparently has some useful tricks for making .deb packages from a distutils setup.py; I'm not sure how it interacts with or without python-central, and I don't know how well it would deal with Twisted's rather... customised setup.py.
