Ditto, but for me it is Debian.

I would _really_ like to see basic packaging for RPM and Debian systems
incorporated into CVS / archives so that people like Karl and myself
could more easily build packages to install and test.

These don't have to have all of the bells and whistles of the formal
packages, but I would certainly have been running a beta of 7.2, had
packages been available prior to release.
