I think a git source would be more maintainable. Config files in
a package is very complicated also if the user make adjustment on this.
Updates are not so easy as with a normal package. A tag for the debian
version would be necessary if something differ with the new version. 

Updates for fai are also more complicated because sometimes a new
nfsroot .... softupdate to all clients .... are needful.

May be the special version fai-debian-lan of the fai-cd "ready to run"
to download is a better start?
