There is work on debian on packaging this. The compiler it uses is modula3
and although the oficial Maintainer is now offline (while moving ISP) I have 
gotten it to almost compile. It fails on a file that wraps networking system
calls. I asked for help on this a month ago but nobody answered so I am stuck.
cvsup allows a network of cvs servers and would be ideal for debian projects
using cvs like the boot-floppies (hence my interest).

If anybody has porting experience and wants to help me port modula3 to debian,
would you please speak up?
