I would very much like to get FusionForge 5.0 into Squeeze. Wearing
both my Debian and my upstream hat, I pushed for a release process early
this year so we could do that, and I'm confident we can reach a stable
FusionForge release soon. We'd very much like to be rid of the old
GForge name for Squeeze (even though some of the sub-packages are still
named gforge-* for now), and get a modern feature set in Debian
(multiple wikis, and support for new version control systems, for a

There have been a few iterations for NEW since there were new binary
packages, and I just uploaded the latest one. The upload went to
experimental, in case we discover something completely broken, but I
intend to push for a move to unstable as soon as it's seen some testing
beyond the instances I (and other upstream members) know of.
