I suspect most people who use Debian binary packages get them from 
http://debian-multimedia.org/ maintained by Christian Marillat.

I have sent a few very minor mythtv debian patches to Christian in the
past and he's always been quick to reply and good about incorporating
improvements.  You might consider downloading 0.19 source packages
from the debian-multimedia archive and sending patches to Christian.
(You could probably use the reportbug package to submit them.)  That
would probably be better for the Debian/MythTV user community than
adding new deb archives.

Also FYI...

mdz is no longer maintaining the Debian mythtv packages:


There was also a pkg-mythtv project:


but I don't think that group ever released any packages.
