It is possible to check out the latest and greatest, even I manage to do that!

Yeah, I've also done a Debian package. Actually, I made a man-page for chuck
to make the packet complete. ;O)
By the time for chuck 1.2 it surely would need an update (we do hope!), but it
was useful as it was.

A good chuck package would indeed be usefull, docs and all. Maybe we should
discuss it a little more in detail. I'm not a Debian maintainer but could maybe
be convinced to make a joint effort on this one.
