As I wrote, I intend to contribute to that, and get the resulting
packages uploaded to Debian. Currently, there's a few issues about
missing dependencies in Debian, which I'm trying to fix first (I don't
maintain these packages, and as we have strong package ownership in
Debian, I have to get in touch with the maintainer first... and that can
take some time!).
