About the CAS server, I think that Michele is interested too.

On my side, I have written that :
https://picoforge.int-evry.fr/cgi-bin/twiki/view/Picoforge/Web/InstallingCasServerDebianLenny dunno what it's good for.
Also I asked on debian-java about the packaging of tomcat web apps :
http://lists.debian.org/debian-java/2008/08/msg00021.html but without
much success :(

neither are we others ;-( but still that's no problem so far, I think.

Wahoo... impressing ;) So you'll be very helpful on reviewing perl
packages like : libauthcas-perl which is in SVN (see
http://wiki.debian.org/Teams/DebianCASPackaging#head-d7219f8a0cca31ec63681326b8635fb8213f2abd for reference)

May I suggest that you join the pkg-cas project, then
(http://alioth.debian.org/project/request.php?group_id=100201) ?

That's why many eyeballs may be more helpful ;)

I've checked phpCAS, in order to try and package it, and there are some
issues like that (duplicated into other packages like moodle and glpi).

Maybe you would be interested in hosting your packages development in
SVN together with ours in the pkg-cas SVN repo on svn.debian.org ?

Looking forward to helping each other with CAS-related packaging.

Best regards,

P.S.: oh, and Btw, I didn't introduce myself, but will do so in another
