Subject Re: Debian package creator task

It seems to be the latest fad - make debian packaging tasks :)

I've started on an antlib for creating/installing/managing debian packages see:
http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/ant/sandbox/antlibs/debian/trunk/

At the moment I don't have a pure java 'create package' task, and
that's something I'd like to add to the antlib.  For obvious reasons
install/remove etc require a debian distro to run on.

Would you be interested in combining efforts instead of working
separately?  As the current antlib is in sandbox, I'm not sure if it's
easy to grant commit access to it.

>From my point of view, this would be a good test of one of the main
reasons for antlibs - help to get more committers on a task by task
basis.

Can any other committers chime in on how we would go about this is we
agree to combine efforts on this antlib?

Thanks,
Kev
