This is a bit of a shame as Jokosher is even easier to set up on other
distributions (or has been for a long time) than it is on Ubuntu. The
message implies that all other users need to compile it, which just
isn't true. There are even far more helpful instructions for other
distributions already on as

No chance of other distributions getting a helpful message on there?
I'm curious as to why it's so exclusive =)

Kind thoughts,

As far as I know, Ubuntu is the only distribution where you can click on a package in Firefox, click OK, click Install, type in your password and have everything installed perfectly. Thus this is the only package that we directly linked to. I am not saying that installing on other distros is not as easy, its just that I (and most if not all of the Jokosher dev team) use Ubuntu and only Ubuntu and so I wouldn't know how to do it elsewhere.

If you or anyone else would like the be in charge of making it easy to install on your distro, send an official sounding set of instructions suitable for the page as well the link(s) to the package(s) to the mailing list, and we'll see that it gets put on the site.
