I will be honest here.  I don't care a lot about how the debian files
are packaged, or where.  But I do not want to see two sets of debs with
differing layouts.  I would rather that either Chris become an official
debian maintainer and take over zope (and thereby upload it to the
normal repositories), or that he leave debian packaging to Gregor, or
whoever succeeds him.  There is no reason that zope.org cannot have a 
short paragraph or two on installing zope under debian, which points
people to the normal repositories; or alternatively, there is no reason
that zope.org cannot mirror debian's zope and related packages.
