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.
