not really. I've uploaded a bunch of dependencies to Debian, but tilemill needs
to be ported to node-backbone 2.x (IIRC), and I haven't had the time to do it.
Also, not all "dependencies" (which would eventually be put in Recommends) are
packaged yet: I started a proposal to systematically package shapefiles in
Debian, so that the resultant "tilemill" package would become smaller.

So, in other words, it would need some more manpower && time to complete it.

I haven't pushed anything to any git repository in pkg-grass, because I'd like
to strip the original tarball a bit more (i.e. drop the embedded shapefiles,
read above)

In the meanwhile, if you really need it, I suggest you to "npm install tilemill"
-- I tried it a couple of times, and it worked ;) (yes, it's a cool software).

Thanks for your interest,
