A few weeks ago, I sent an email to Jacob asking what would be needed
to package genesis (the arkOS web interface) for Debian.

His reply is at:

I've begun by working on the dependencies needed by genesis that
aren't in Debian - the python modules "ntplib" and "python-iptables".
I'm mentioning this in public to nudge myself into finishing that work
off. :)
