While following the saio instructions (http://swift.openstack.org/development_saio.html) I ran into a problem with the swift-core ppa.  I get the following on apt-get update after adding the ppa repo:

W: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/swift-core/ppa/ubuntu/dists/lucid/main/binary-amd64/Packages.gz  404  Not Found

It appears that there the lucid dist was removed from the ppa, probably on Dec 11, as the directory /swift-core/ppa/ubuntu/dists is shown as modified on that date and no longer contains the lucid subdirectory.

Who has responsibility for maintaining the ppa repo, and is there anything I can do to help get it working again?  I'm also interested in finding out how the dependencies in the swift-core ppa are maintained, as I would like to be able to isolate python dependencies in a virtualenv but the swift source repo doesn't appear to list the dependencies and their required versions.
