There is a 'fork' of OpenFoam: FreeFoam 
(http://sourceforge.net/projects/freefoam/), done by Michael Wild and
me. The changes are in the building (using CMake), installation
(/usr/lib/FreeFoam, /usr/bin/ff_* , /etc/FreeFoam) and usage (no
ENVIRONMENTAL settings. It seems to work fine, but we are still testing
it. I already have had a look at Paraview and cdbs technology (which is
new to me) how I might be able to deb FreeFoam.
The files have not yet been uploaded to sf.net or at the 
repo.or.cz git repository. 

Michael asked me to wait with publishing the software (he holds the sf
account) It has been 1 month I had the last contact with Michael and he
did not respond last week. I will try again and eventually issue
FreeFoam on the git repository.
