As a programmer under debian, I really appriciate the rich debian packages.

However, it is not convenient to read and analysis source code, even with emacs and scsope.

A litte progress has been acheived after fighting for years. You can test it at http://jp.hostesr.com/.

For benefit of all developers, it is best to put it under debian.

That looks pretty cool! What do you mean by "put it under debian"?

Also, have you seen OpenGrok? There was effort to put a code index online using that -- see http://www.mail-archive.com/debian-devel@lists.debian.org/msg281864.html for a little more discussion of that. It's a pretty intense, effective code indexer. You can see it live on the OpenSolaris codebase, e.g. http://cvs.opensolaris.org/source/xref/ext3/ext2-gate/usr/src/ucblib/libucb/sparc/sys/signal.c -- check out how "signal.h" links to the signal.h file that gets used.

How do you find your system compares to OpenGrok? It'd be good to know about advantages of yours.

It's good to see that you're interested in making code easier to browse through! That is a real need.
