Debian packages of W3C validator -- 0.6.1 and CVS version

For those who are interested, a new revision (-3) of the Debian package
of the W3C validator is available. It is still version 0.6.1, and the
main changes deal with packaging issues (especially dependencies), plus a
few changes backported from CVS to solve bugs. It is not part of the official
Debian archive yet (the previous revision, 0.6.1-2, is in the archive), so
please report any bug to me directly and do not use the Debian Bug Tracking

It is available for the Debian Woody (current stable, i386 only), Sarge
(current testing) or Sid (unstable) distributions at
http://www.mathgen.ch/debian/. If you want to use the apt-get command, add
the line

  deb http://www.mathgen.ch/debian/woody ./

in the /etc/apt/sources.list file (replace woody by sarge or sid if you use 
another distribution). All dependencies that are not part of the standard
Debian archive are provided at the same address, and running the command

  apt-get install w3c-markup-validator

as root will install all the packages needed. 

I was wondering is anyone would be interested in having Debian packages of
the CVS version of the validator (and, later, beta versions), to help with
the testing of the next version. Obviously, they would not be ultra-stable
packages, and I can not guarantee daily updates, but this may be useful to
some people. It's likely that the package will only work on the Testing and
Unstable distributions (I won't be able to produce regular backports). If
you are interested, please send me an email directly -- if I get a few
positive answers, I'll make a new package available on the web as soon as
