If it will not be available for Ubuntu 12.10, then I probably need to figure out a way to provide the new version for my MIDI training initiative.  If it were to come out with Ubuntu 12.10, I could simply re-package (dpkg-repack) that. 

The version of fluidsynth I built for testing has development libraries.  It is for i386.  I would also need to package it (or something generated differently) in a way that when the official version came out, that version would replace it. 

Do you have any ideas (or is there documentation on) what I would need to do to provide an interim version of fluidsynth that would be reasonable for my users to make use of?

Thanks for testing!

First, it requires somebody to package the new version up in Debian. 
Then it will be automatically imported when 13.04 development starts. If 
we want this in 12.10 - which we probably do - it requires somebody 
requesting a sync from Debian experimental (that is, once it has been 
packaged there).
