It's great to see that someone is working on getting CiviCRM into
Debian. I wanted to let you know that there was some previous work on
this a while back that you might be able to leverage. Daniel Holbach
and I put some effort into this as part of the Ubuntu NGO team, but
this has stalled largely due to the number of bundled PHP code copies.
There is a wiki page that we used to track this work . There you
can find links to debian packaging branches for quite a few of the
bundled code copies as well as a link to a PPA with binary and source
packages. We forwarded our work to pkg-php-maint at the time. Some of
these things have found there way into Debian since. There is also a
branch for a civicrm package at lp:~ubuntu-ngo/civicrm/ubuntu This
package was functional, but never really ready for prime-time.
Please let me know if there is any way I can help.
