There used to be a dak package but it ended up lagging very badly behind
the actual dak code because it needed some database schema upgrades as
time went on and these are very difficult to manage in a robust fashion
in a package. Nobody ever had the time to do the updates and the package
was so bitrotted that it was felt safer to remove it rather than mislead
people into doing new installations with it.
