Malte recently told me about the new Debian "openacs" package. I decided to checkout this package after visiting the "Open Source Meets Business" conference in Nuremberg last week. A survey from heise.de showed that Debian + Ubuntu together hold some 80% of Linux "market share" in Germany. So I guess the Debian installer should be the highest priority in this community (apart from a Windows installer), isn't it?
However, the install was quite a pain for a non-Debian expert, or is it my advanced age? I started with http://openacs.com/xowiki/debian , but I can't confirm that these instructions "facilitate the adoption by novices"...
As a result I have set up our own ]project-open[ Debian instructions at: http://www.project-open.org/download/install-debian.html. Maybe you want to copy some content of our page to the OpenACS page above? Or am I the only one who doesn't intuitively get why you need to add a "testing" repository line in sources.conf?
