AFAIK, one dell client reported he got them from Dell. After which the
following happened I think:

- Redhat gets mad at dell (Redhat + Dell = "strategic partnership")
- Dell gets mad at client

Dell refuses to comment.
Dell releases a statement (weeks later) that it is "trivial" to get the
OMSA packages to work on Debian, and that Dell Tech Whatever is going
to release a HOWTO.

Weeks later: still no howto.
