Not to worry -- we're very aware of this.  Mike Chase-Salerno is actually
in the OSCAR working group (so is Ben, the guy who started this thread
:-).  We've been talking about all the new SIS stuff for a little while
now (including the debain support); I think Mike went on holiday before he
had a chance to commit the new SIS stuff into the OSCAR tree.  IIRC it was
only formally released a few days before Christmas...?

There are still a lot of other things in OSCAR that need to happen before
we can properly support Debian (OSCAR is [currently] heavily dependant
upon RPMs), but hearing about alien could turn out to be quite helpful.
