Initial work on packaging mod_tile was started in the Debian GIS git
repository, but the project is not very active making it not a great
choice for inclusion in Debian stable releases.

Instructions for a tileserver on Debian jessie are available in the wiki:


But that is also somewhat outdated.

Help maintaining tileserver packages in Debian and the documentation by
people actually running tileservers is greatly appreciated.
