Early warning: I'm in the process of doing just that. :-) I hope to host
a page as useful as Matt's, for Debian/Dell users, with packages, etc. I
have yet to fully research the distribution issues with Dell's utilities
though, which may be a roadblock to really useful, Debian-like-ease
packages. My current ones all include binaries. I suspect that will be a
problem, unless I can scrounge permission from someone in Dell.

I'll definitely ping the list when the page and repo go up.
