I am not.   Am pointing you to a distribution that we support directly.

Supporting the RPM distributions for us is easy, adding DEB for us is
hard because it requires cycles that we do not have (it is not just a
matter of redoing the packaging, it is a matter of testing, QA, upgrade
paths and so on).

I do not want to spread ourselves too thin, we have a lot of packaging
needs that are not satisfied today and adding more distributions to the
mix is just not a priority.

You should bring this up with your distribution, they have the proper
resources to support this.
