Yes, I have debs of it. I even have 2 other developers here at work using
them. However, I'm currently getting 2.4.4beta up and running(the debs are
2.4.3), and I am preparing an nmu of tomcat, as the current way I integrate
doesn't work, due to bugs in dpkg.
I've filed an ITP, and will probably be uploading in 2 weeks, at the most. I
don't want to release the debs to the public yet, as I am still playing around
with the debification, and I don't want to deal with upgrade issues from
earlier test debs.
For instance, to go from jboss-tomcat-service 2.4.3-0.17 to
jboss-tomcat-service 18.104.22.168-2.4.4beta-0.1, requires puring the package, and
possibly manually fixing /etc/init.d/tomcat. I diverted that conffile in
earlier packages, and dpkg fucks it up when tomcat gets upgraded. So, for
2.4.4beta, I don't divert anymore, but require tomcat to be split into
Fortunately, I almost have the nmu diff done, and will be sending that to the
