[zeromq-dev] Debian packaging

After playiong around with zeromq a bit, I've had some hopes of actually 
using zeromq in one or two projects besides creating the packaging, but with 
changing jobs and other stuff coming up I don't see me doing much work in 
this direction.

I can continue publishing the Debian packages, but I won't really be able to 
help in maintenance beyond just forwarding bug reports and hoping they're 
not Debian specific.  In other words, I'd be happy if a Debian user would 
step forward to continue package maintenance.  If you're not a Debian 
Maintainer or Debian Developer, I can act as sponsor (some mentoring, 
uploading the packages.)

I guess it would be great if the packages would start using the git 
repository directly (I've not done this because I'm not really familiar with 
git and because I have a mercurial based packaging workflow that works -- if 
you're starting with packaging stuff, it's probably easier to start creating 
a git based workflow that works with the zeromq git repoitory instead of 
adopting my workflow.)
