At Progeny, we are committed to giving back to Debian everything
we've done. Right now, we are very short on time, but in a few
weeks, we should have enough free time to start packaging our
work for Debian proper. Some of our software, like discover (our
hardware autodetection tool), will probably require some small
infrastructure changes, but i'm sure there won't be any real
problems integrating them.

Even though i've been stuck in the NM queue for 6 months, i'm
sure one of my Official Debian Developer(tm) co-workers won't
mind sponsoring my packages :).
