That would be great. I can try to walk you though any pitfalls.  

That said, I built those on Kubuntu Dapper at work and for use at work, and
it is trivial as Dapper is so close to testing.  No change needed to debian/*
apart from a changelog entry to set it apart.

[ There often is a little bit involved for Debian stable as the packages are
older, and/or because Christian also builds the r-recommended packages.  That
last change may matter. ]


Hell, there are no rules here - we're trying to accomplish something.
