Well good luck ;). Please make sure to add this list to CC. Even if you
fail the feedback might be valueable to improve what we have in tree.

Yes i am using it. They might not be ideal but i also did not have any
problems with the packages.

We had that discussion before. I think there are quite a few people
that install xenomai with debian-packages. And as long as upstream
(Debian) does not maintain that folder, it makes some sense to keep it
in the sources. Otherwise we would need another repo just for that, and
establish a lock-step mechanism like submodules.
If we do not get upstream Debian to take care of them, i would suggest
to simplify the whole thing. i.e. maybe just throw all in one package.
