Bug Description

First of all I don't know if it is the best place to add this request. So if it is not please move it or delete it.
I am using G.Control for about 1,5 years and It helped me to manage my sources for 2ClickUpdate application. Apart from G.Control I use debreate ( http://debreate.sourceforge.net/ ) for creating my packages as I hate terminal and debian packaging methodology and there is no good and straight foreword documentation for non-technical users like me. So G.Control and Debreate have been helping me to contribute applications for the Ubuntu community.

I am not a developer (only some bash scripting) and I don't know if it is possible but I would like to see:
--Ground Control and Debreate to get "merged" and unified
--Also if it is possible Ground control to be a "Control Center" for creating, packaging and publishing packages to PPA's
--Last but not least, I would like to see Ground Control (plus Debreate+PPA uploader GUI) to gain some "love" from Ubuntu developers and Canonical, who are seeking a solution for helping and getting more people into packaging. But they don't see that the tools are in front of there eyes !

Thank you Martin for your time and effort on G.Control

Thank you very much for your kind words.

I agree with you that GC needs more love, I wish I could have attracted more developers to work with me on the project. Having very little substantive help really kills ones mood to progress the project.

I think one of the big problems is that programmers don't see the point in it. They use the command line and that's good enough.

Thank you for telling me about Debrate, it looks very interesting.
