Well we can go back to the first scripts I did before we had a debian
package. That is, create a compress file with the binaries and do all
the install tasks on the script but it will take some time. Maybe I
can ask for some help or try to find some time to do the job myself
this week.

The RC is almost there (the release team are doing the final tests
before publishing the build as they have reported this morning).

 Best regards
