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
3) Would attract more developers to help
