If you guys carve the damn package up into a billion other little packages and then shove the files around into a thousand locations then I'm gonna scream.  At least if you do that, man up and update the Mongrel Debian documentation on the Mongrel site.

Well.... at the moment, we just thought of two (2!!!!) packages: one
called "mongrel" (ooooooohhh) and one called libgemsplugin-ruby . I
think we don't need more packages, don't you? Your patch to cgi is
already in debian ruby package, so we don't need to package it. And
maybe in the future we can create new packages for fastthread,
mongrel_cluster, mongrel_service, etc. Those should by different
packages because they are already distinct gems.

And I can update the page about mongrel in debian. I'll do it when we
finish our work.

We are documenting it, take it easy :D I already start to write the man
page for mongrel_rails.

And when the packages are ready, any problems with then can be redirect
to our mailling-list (debian-ruby at lists.debian.org).
