An alternative could be to generate and publish our own Debian
repository (

Another thing I looked into loooong time ago is to bring ApacheDS and
Studio into Debian, But that was such a complex process that I gave up.
Especially Java and Eclipse base applications are difficult to bring in.

However I totally agree with you. We don't have the resources to
maintain it. We already provide a deb package for ApacheDS so I think it
is easy to install it on Ubuntu or Debian.

Kind Regards,
