i think it's better to get them in ubuntu as soon as possible, then we
can sync with debian ... maybe i could work on this with olly ... so
he 'll have even the possibility to see how cdbs works and its

We could start having a bzr repo of the debian directories for each package.

If He'll be not happy with it ... we'll use debhelper no problems.
