Hi Yaroslav,

Thanks for reaching out.  Yes, I would like be involved in the debian packaging effort.  However, in the interest of full disclosure I should admit that (1) as you've probably already guessed from my packages, I'm a novice at building debian packages, and (2) my bandwidth is all but crippled at the moment (though I'll assist in whatever way I can).

I have some questions about your package:

(1) Where is the java viewer?  Being as it's my primary contribution to the project, I'd kinda like to see it included ;)
(2) Have all of Pierre's Fltk patches been incorporated into the native debian Fltk package?  If not, the viewer will lack full functionality.  (I realize that statically linking the fltk libs into our binary is problematic from a distro point of view).

Thanks,
-brian
