Hi Julien,

I'm sure Orfeo will be a welcome addition, especially with the developer 
team committed to ongoing maintainance.

I'm happy to answer any packaging questions I'm able to, fire when 
ready.  I admit the packaging instructions take a few passes to 
understand. (http://trac.osgeo.org/osgeo4w/wiki/PackagingInstructions)

Someone  will need to create a user for you so you can upload to the 
repository. Speaking of which, can someone please provide a list of o4w 
admins and their coverage of their responsibilty so we know who to ask 
for what? thanks! I started a page for this at
