What is an "official" repository? The packages from the PPA are clean
backports from "official" Debian (and hence Ubuntu) packages. We could
copy the packages in "haproxy.debian.net" to make them look more
official, but using a PPA is convenient for users to add (one command).

As for 14.04, I will push it the PPA shortly.
Don't sacrifice clarity for small gains in "efficiency".
