The Debian packages we build can certainly use some improvements.

Have you looked at the Condor package in the official Debian sid and wheezy repositories? They're missing a few of the features available in the Debian packages we offer directly, but they're properly formatted Debian packages.

As developer time permits, we'd like to have the two set of packages converge.
