The package names in the first column are links to the Package Tracker:


This is gives a nice overview of the versions in Debian and links to the
packaging repository, upstream homepage, various QA tools, etc.

You can create an account on the tracker, and subscribe to notifications
for various events specific to the package like bugreports and new uploads.

osm2pgrouting is indeed not packaged for Debian yet. The packaging
created for OSGeo-Live is a good starting point. The source packages can
be imported in a git repositories suitable for Debian package
maintenance (using `gbp import-dscs` [0]).

OSGeoLive uses the standard Ubuntu package repositories and pulls
additional packages from its own and other PPAs:


The osm2pgrouting packages in the PPA are available on Launchpad:


I'll use those packages to populate the git repository for use within
the Debian GIS team to get the package into shape for inclusion in
Debian and Ubuntu itself. I'd like your help to maintain these packages
in Debian and Ubuntu, you're free to chose your level of involvement
from none to doing all the packaging work in addition to your upstream
development. Keeping the pgrouting packaging updates has so far been
easy, and it don't expect osm2pgrouting to be any different.
