Packaging is generally best done by the person interested in the
software. For more info about getting packages into Debian check out
the debian-mentors FAQ:

To get that done, file a bug on the www.debian.org pseudo-package:

I'd be happy to "sponsor" you such a domain, which one would you like?

I've no machines or time to do that, perhaps someone else on this list
is willing and able.

There are/were plans for something similar, see the source.d.o section here:


Seems to be waiting on hardware and folks to work on it.

There also used to be source.d.n, which ran OpenGrok but the
maintainer of it didn't have time to keep it working so I had to
"de-sponsor" it.

Not exactly a list of yes/no answers but I found your desire for such
answers confusing.
