the packaging tools at least

cygwin is in a great state, I managed to port a big CORBA framework
under cygwin with just a little pain !
my goal certainly selfish since I would like to see the packages I use under cygwin
and they are already available under debian
CORBA mico 2.3.5 (with all the services and especially the naming and trading services)
Corelinux ( http://corelinux.sourforge.net ) a C++ Framework
I already started looking at dpkg and related tools
However I am new to this and will certainly need some help from the debian side
the is already a list debian-win32
