Please don't raise a bug about MonoDevelop packaging against ubuntu,
The debian-cli guys are very good about updating monodevelop packages,
They do there work in debian not ubuntu, and the packages filter
through from debian unstable to ubuntu in the debian import during the
ubuntu development cycle. As already stated MonoDevelop 3.0 packages
are available in the latest ubuntu.

And please do create debian packages for deployment rather then a
script as Paul Johnson is suggesting. A debian package is the correct
way to install on a debian based system like ubuntu.
