That being said (I agree), there needs to be a Debian Developer or a
Debian Maintainer who would be willing to do the packaging, take care of
bug reports etc. Best method would be to file a wishlist RFP (Request
for Package) with the wnpp (Work Needing and Prospective Packages)
pseudopackage in our BTS.


P.S.: While I agree that this is an attempt of an Upstream to plug his
software, which I find legitimate, I would not call this a Spam mail.
