Oh, that's simple - a company, building ARM-based devices, running Linux 
(http://www.dsa-ac.de), there are a few of them around.

Yeah, I know, that's exactly what I meant - some unofficial deb packages 
floating around... I certainly can compile the stuff myself - but that was 
one of the reasons to install a proper distro - to have everything under a 
package management control. Yeah, could try to build a deb myself - never 
tried that before, shouldn't be too difficult though.

Don't think so. There mostly distribution-neutral questions are discussed, 
although, sometimes distro-specific appear too - as slightly off-topic.

Yep, will look into it.
