Well i'm not from LL, but i have been maintaining Debian and Ubuntu
repositories for the more than 2 years. Originaly as a fork viewer
known as omvviewer, i'm focusing on snowglobe a lot more now (on the
repositories) and have the 1.3 version of snowglobe (well 1.3 SVN +
patches i hope to commit to SVN) up and running for testing. So you
can apt-get install snowglobe directly from my repository. I'm also a
committer to snowglobe and helping with various build and cmake issues
are one of the things i have done to help ensure keeping this on a
resposotory is as smooth a process as possible.

The basic details can be found at http://omvviewer.byteme.org.uk
linking to debian and ubuntu (and others) instructions and the
package. Although that page is a little out of date as it still talks
mostly about omvviewer.
