systemimager and systemconfigurator are in debian/stable and debian/unstable.
the upstream systemimager developers develop on debian.

those debs are only for stable users wanting the latest systemimager.

systemimager-type imaging doesn't care about package format.

systeminstaller, which provides an alternate mechanism for creating 
systemimager-style images, needs debian support added.  i have debs for it, but
upstream doesn't want it in debian until it can create debian images (although 
it can create rpm based images on debian just fine).
