I'm really glad to see you here, I'm interested in Jarifa but I had the
impression that the development was finished, I'm subscribed at the
Jarifa's development mailing list [1] but the list is dead.

The best approach is to maintain the package in Debian with the Debian
BOINC Maintainers, in this way will be very easy to include Jarifa in
Ubuntu because will sync it eventually from Debian as René mentioned, so
will be great if you join us in the team ;-)
