Wow this is brilliant! Would you be up. perchance, for helping us get
CKAN itself into Debian Sid (and possibly Ubuntu?). Given that we
already build for Ubuntu LTS we should be able to get it accepted :-)

Hmm, I'd noticed that. What do you suggest? Is there an actual
conflict in script name or just in package name. If the latter we
could tweak the package name. If the former we have a trickier time.

Happy for that to merge in.

My feeling on a first pass would be just to instruct people in man
page about location online rather than doing a dpm-doc at this stage.
