I am preparing a seamonkey package as my employers, Linspire, want to see 
it in their Debian-derived distro (as well as Debian proper.)  You can see 
the current state of things at:

The package works but I have mot uploaded it yet as lintian still shows a 
number of policy violations.

I welcome help from anyone who would like to work on getting these 
problems fixed.  Going forward, team-maintainence would be a good idea.
