I think, that noone will work on WordPerfect for debian. This is not a
free software and a large peace of software, too.

For debian there is a non-free section, but this is not a part of
debian. If you need a Office-Suite, try OpenOffice.org
(www.openoffice.org). There are debian-packages available, more

Try this out ;)

This will come into debian in the future! :)
