I don't know what you are capable of doing, but there currently is lack
of support by Debian-installer for installing sarge on Atari systems.
The main reason here is the fact that the Atari partition format isn't
supported by parted. If you think you're up to that, it'd be nice if you
could code the support for that into parted. There is supposed to be
documentation for the on-disk format of the partition table that Atari
computers use, but I don't know where this can be found (anyone?)

If that's outside your league, there are still more things you could do.
Christian Steigies and Michael Schmitz both have a CT060, but they're
having problems setting it up; if yours is running correctly and running
Debian, perhaps you could help them fix their issues.

Other than that, generally using and testing Debian unstable or testing
on actual m68k hardware is also very useful (provided you file bugs when
you find them :). 

The amount of time between slipping on the peel and landing on the
pavement is precisely one bananosecond
