Ah, i see you are the package maintainer!
So, the people running debian/unstable apt-get it.
For Ubuntu, you could just download the package itself from:

Which is exactly what they get it they follow those steps. I assume
the debian package also does it like this?

PS. Since you are a debian packager; perhaps you can look into a
qooxdoo package? Although itsn't very hard to fetch it from SVN and
just run make; it might make it somewhat easier for new users.
Esspecially if it drops default apache scripts in sites-available for
things like the api-browser, etc.
