http://gpe.linuxtogo.org/download/source/gpesyncd-2.0.tar.bz2 might be
possible to package, just not right now.

Do you know if gpesyncd actually works? I haven't packaged it so far
because I didn't think it was usable.

No. It is a case of asking for a package which does not currently exist.

1. Not much will happen until Lenny is released - I'm too busy with
Lenny and Emdebian and adding NEW packages during a release freeze isn't
that useful, except possibly via experimental.
2. File an RFP bug against the wnpp package in Debian, i.e. make a
request for this package and include all the information you can find in
the ITP bugs already closed for GPE, e.g.
3. Alternatively, file an ITP (intent to package) if you intend to do
the Debian packaging and one of us will check your package with a view
to possibly sponsoring your upload into Sid once Lenny is released.
