Hi Ben,

It's great to see that someone is working on getting CiviCRM into
Debian. I wanted to let you know that there was some previous work on
this a while back that you might be able to leverage. Daniel Holbach
and I put some effort into this as part of the Ubuntu NGO team, but
this has stalled largely due to the number of bundled PHP code copies.
There is a wiki page that we used to track this work [0]. There you
can find links to debian packaging branches for quite a few of the
bundled code copies as well as a link to a PPA with binary and source
packages. We forwarded our work to pkg-php-maint at the time. Some of
these things have found there way into Debian since. There is also a
branch for a civicrm package at lp:~ubuntu-ngo/civicrm/ubuntu This
package was functional, but never really ready for prime-time.

Please let me know if there is any way I can help.

I'm sorry to inform you that's not the case. This bug report is a Request
For Package; it's a place to coordinate requests for the work and any
possible future people who might step forward to do the work.

To my knowledge there's no work being done on this for Debian yet, and I'm
not suitable to package a complex PHP application :-)

Great! I'm glad that it's further along than I'd thought.

If you decide to resume this work and contribute the package to Debian,
please act early to update this bug report accordingly:

    If you are going to package this, retitle the bug report to replace
    "RFP" with "ITP", in order for other people to know the program is
    already being packaged, and set yourself as the owner of the bug. Then
    package the software, upload it and close this bug once the package has
    been installed.

I guess I misread the title out of hopefulness. =) Still, this is good
information to have in the bug report either way.
