Gentoo already has packaged "cm", but they took the coward's way out and 
just used the Scheme version under Guile. At my instigation, they are 
re-packaging it to use their version of the Debian 
"common-lisp-controller". A Debian source package should be easy once 
the CLC work is done. I've also requested "clm" and "cmn" and a combined 
"cm/clm/cmn" package. I'd take a shot at the packaging myself if I knew 
anything about how to use the "common-lisp-controller". Is there 
documentation on it somewhere?

Besides, can't you install from an RPM on Debian (and Gentoo)? Does 
there need to be a ".deb" for a package to make it into AgNuLa?
