It is quite easy to setup an external debian package repository, but
getting the packages into Debian/Ubuntu is a bit harder (remember the
Gem borkage on Ubuntu ?), and I still haven't decided how/if to go about
There are several issues I am not feeling very comfortable about, and
considering that doing the packaging of pd stuff for Debian has been a
rather rewardless job in the past I doubt that I will take that burden.
I think the best would be if we do Debian packages for an external
apt-gettable repository, this would also make it easier to keep them
up to date etc.
