You are getting things wrong. I set up the gambas team ppa so that kendek
could push changes to it, instead of using his own ppa, labeled as the
stable one.

So, the gambas-team/gambas-daily is unstable and only to be used by
developers. The nemh/gambas3 is the stable one, maintained only by kendek.

Note that neither of the ppa are "official", we are just contributors.
That's up to Benoît to decide. The name "gambas team" may sound like it is
an official thing, but it is just a name I used to set up a Launchpad Team
to allow others to access to the packaging recipes (rules used to build the
daily packages), not just me.
