I would be happy to help you with this. I am currently finishing exams
ATM and next week I am on holiday but after that I will have 7-9 weeks
of uninterrupted holiday to help with this.

If you could draw up a list of packages that needs to be dealt with by
this new system then I would be glad to work through them in a couple of
weeks and work out which files are the ones that need new packages
creating for them in the manner you describe.

Please note that I do not have a whole lot of experience in debian
packaging. Therefore I am really not looking to become a leader for
this: I am very willing to work on this, but not to lead it!
