Here a PPA list (Personal Package Archive) of Free Software compatible with gNewSense and Ubuntu Hardy.
The PPA repositories, are packages developed by some dev-teams or independan developers, that allow the use of software that isn't available on the offical repositories, also can introduce newer releases, enabeling some features that are available on recent releases that the officia repositories don't have and even more, software that won't be available until the next mayor release.

The PPA repositories are actively developed, usually most of the software released is stable, even thougth it can't be warrantied their complete and continous stability along releases.

It is necesary to note, that the backport repositories as adding PPA repositories can cause potential undesired results.

Said that, here are listed some useful PPA repositories, having in mind the Community Guidelines when adding this repositories:

How to add repositories

Addding repos, can be done in different ways, from GUI

System -> Administration -> Software Sources

  sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com (ID key)

i.e. tweak:

  sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com 0xfe85409eeab40eccb65740816af0e1940624a220
