Many thanks for this information.  I also think that this while very interesting
for debian-edu in special also an issue on debian-devel.  BTW, the URL above
contains more interesting packages.  Do you have trouble finding a sponsor for
these packages or are there other reasons why they stay outside Debian?
I would really hate if finding a sponsor would holding back NX from entering
Debian.  Perhaps it would be a good idea to think about moving the existing
packages to debian experimental.  This would have the following advantages:

   1) Sponsoring procedure would be established.
   2) Packages would enter the override file which needs about 1-2 weeks for
      new packages
   3) Would attract more developers to help

Kind regards
