You should ask this on debian-alpha, you'll get all the alpha
people.  As far as I can see from the uploads made, the alpha
port is usable.  I have to admit that I don't know the state of
install disks or so.  This could mean that installing it is fiddling.

It's a forever lasting competition one should avoid whenever possible.

a) because our majordomo is a smartlist

b) because the listmasters consider this as mis-feature.  The reply-to
   field should only be set by the user sending the mail.  With one

If you want to put it into Debian right away there are two chances:

a) Get a maintainer who will maintain your package or

b) Apply as new maintainer.  You'll find most of the information on
   http://www.de.debian.org/ under the developers corner or via
   mail to new-maintainer@debian.org.
