Are you on the Clean mailing list?  If not, go to
http://www.cs.kun.nl/~clean/.  You can ask on the mailing list about
debianising Clean.

It will not go into main because of license restrictions (not for
commercial purposes), unless they've changed the license recently.

There was also the problem of having to bootstrap the compiler using
the old closed source compiler, because it's written in Clean itself,
but the new compiler can be used for it now.

I myself may have said something once about debianising Clean (used to
work there), but I don't remember really, and it is probably a little
too much for me now.

Ciao.                                                         Vincent.
