Using packages is a good policy but it isn't always possible. I've never
created a Debian package but I have created RPMs before and it isn't
very difficult. I wouldn't necessarily dismiss something just because
there is no package because building one is always an option.

posted the OCS NG link earlier. Somehow, I had found OCS NG from GLPI
web site <> when I encountered it a few months ago.
