Yes, I also sent him an email some time ago, asking if he is interested
in what I did, my but never got a reply.

I do. I am currently a littlebit short of time, but I also already
hacked some improvements into debpool, among them
- - Added optional File Alteration Monitor support to make the
incoming queue more responsive (plan is to also add GAMIN support)
- - Started to implement automatic tests to check if packages are
properly installed in the pool (see the tests subdirectory)
- - Added support for multi arch archives (the .package files were
not arch specific and therefore overwritten when an additional
arch-specific package was uploaded)
- - Some minor bug fixes
The package is at http://littletux.homelinux.org/debian/pool/main/d/debpool/

Great! I would be glad to contribute to this project!
