Installation of MailScanner on Debian

Hi all

There doesn't seem to be much in the way of documentation for installing 
MailScanner on a Debian system.  Users seem to face two choices:

	Install the Debian package, but that is always somewhat out of date
	Install from source, but that will result in an installation that
	is not Debianised at all.

I would like to have the best of both worlds.  Ideally what is needed is
for the maintainer of the Debian package to bring that out within a week
or so of the standard RPM and source packages.  Assuming that their
resources are limited, could we not set up a Debian group that could
assist in ensuring that this gets out as quickly as possible?  

Alternatively, what about some basic instructions on Debianising the
source package so that users can do it themselves?
