I think not. Debian packages from *anywhere* are not under control of BTS
and as a consequence they have no quality assurance. If the software is
interesting for Debian users it should be integrated into Debian.
The manual the poster was intended to write can be short: Build a
lintian + bug free package and find a sponsor to upload. Otherwise
Debian user won't even notice the fine software.
