Debian people are polishing most of their packages till they really
shine, down to typos in usage screens and manual pages (including
writing from scratch if project lacks one).  I usually try to keep an
eye of what Debian, Arch, and Gentoo people have about the ports I
maintainer or touch in FreeBSD.  I wish more people could also pay
attention to work done over Linux camps WRT packages.
