No shortage of space.

debs would be great.

Currently we have a servlet:

that takes 2 parameters, eg.


currently pkgType can be raw (.zip file) or win (.zip file with
setup.exe inside for windows users)

if someone wanted to add a pkgType=deb, that would be wonderful!!!  You
will find the source code under the CVS module: jsword

Let me know if you have JSP / servlet / Java / jsword questions.
