althought the version is named 1.9 on the debian packages the version is
We already have some customer wanting 2.1 and we are using the debian
package 2.0.4 in production with the GOsa management frontend.
For now the debian packages misse debconf style of installation and the
template system is not integrated in the debian packages
We could collaborate on making great debian packages for 2.1
