Hey Joe,

Debian packages would be good.  You can definitely help with this.  If you
the package built, send it to me, and we'll stick it on scipy.org. Also,
can you supply a short description of you to install the package on Debian?
Or, another option is for you to put it on your scipy.org member page.  This
would make it easier for you to maintain until it becomes a part of an
automated build process.  We can put a link from the download page to
your member page.

Also, I haven't used Debian and so am not familiar with its packaging (other
than everyone acknowledges that its very slick).  Can the dpkg-buildpackage
stuff be installed and run a on a RH box, or does it require a Debain
If it can be done on a RH box and you can provide the scripts to produce
the packages, we'll try and set it up so that it is built automatically on
system for the next release.
