Please note that official Debian packaging is quite different from what you 
can find in upstream repository. LizardFS team is not competent with 
packaging and they barely touched it as far as I recall.

Obvious way to improve packaging would be to address Lintian warnings, 
introduce support for Systemd etc. Sorry I don't have time for in-depth 
review and at the moment I have no intention to sponsor MooseFS...

That is very nice indeed. Thank you.
