Tommi and others,

It sounds like Garrett and Will have FreeBSD packaging covered. I would
like to start working on the Debian source packaging. Would you or
others like to join in? However I would rather not duplicate work.

It sounds like David Kimdon already has (as of a month ago) much of the
work done somewhere. I would like to see this work checked into the
present self-hosting svn repository and work from there. The Intent To
Package (ITP) announcement made 200 days ago has a discussion attached
to it.


As Karl mentioned, the packaging work can be productively done now in
parallel with work on the main product. I think the dependencies that
were discussed in the ITP are in much better shape now as Debian
3.0/woody is in the final stages of it's base package freeze.
