The scripts used on ftp-master.debian.org are called "katie".
They are not debianized, but you can download the source code by:
$ cvs -d:pserver:email@example.com:/cvs/dak login
(Logging in to firstname.lastname@example.org)
[the password is blank, just press ENTER]
$ cvs -d:pserver:email@example.com:/cvs/dak checkout dak
See http://ftp-master.debian.org/ for more information.
(By the way, adding katie to apt-gettable howto may be an overkill.)
