The AG packaging has become much easier to deal with as of AG3.  Mostly, 
packaging for debian requires the packaging of a number of smaller 
dependencies, plus the AG toolkit.  If there are multiple people with 
debian packaging expertise, the task could go very quickly.  If you're 
interested, let me know and we can begin working together on it. 

Derek:  Information about required packages is under 'Current CVS 
Snapshot' on this page:


Let me know if you're able to get started and/or have any questions.
