Please do.

I will try to see if I can pull stuff from stable or experimental
without lot of breakage.

On a slightly off-topic note the DD's (Debian Developers) have said
they would be moving to GIT after Squeeze and hopefully there will be
better turnaround as far as packages and the infrastructure are
concerned. While I do not think it will happen overnight but do hope
in couple of years things would be more better (read current) .
