I'm sorry, but when we investigated CiviCRM packaging the only thing we
found were ITP bugs with little discussion and no links to the current

Luckily enough it didn't take us very long to come up with the packaging
and we thought we'd actually help moving the inclusion in Debian forward.

To be clear, I really don't intend to take away your ITPs from you and
if you intend to maintain those packages, then that's totally fine with me.

What are the next steps?

Have a great day,
