I think that it is easily doable to have your packages shipped in
wheezy, you will need to consider if that is what you want though, it
may increase your maintenance burden or have other bad effects, which
we are in the process of brainstorming in this thread:


The configuration files trampling issue sounds like what DebianEdu face
with their solutions, it would be nice to have these sorts of issues
solved within Debian.

Looking at your squeeze repo, your ruby packages will need some updates
for the new ruby packaging policy for wheezy:
