Actually, there is an apt repository. You can put

deb http://www.hetzi.at/thomas/debian unstable/i386/
deb http://www.hetzi.at/thomas/debian unstable/all/
deb-src http://www.hetzi.at/thomas/debian unstable/source/

in your /etc/apt/sources.list and then do "apt-get install openbox3". As 
far as I can see you still have to compile obconf from source, though.
That, along with documention, is available from http://openbox.org.
