Ah, yes - it's Sam's name I remember, but couldn't find as any of
the current freeradius packages maintainers.

I'm sure the package name will need to change to freeradius3 for
the official Debian version because of the extensive config
changes required, but that doesn't show up anywhere either.

It shouldn't be too hard to get a package made up, based on the
existing debian/ dir in the source tree, I'm sure - it'll have to
be set to a 3.0 format (not native) and a few other bits. As with
all things, guess it just needs a bit of TLC.

Added note is that the current debian package in FR doesn't build
cleanly - first time make fails with rlm_sqlhpwippool (which is
odd as it's not listed in 'stable') but re-run dpkg-buildpackage
and the second time it works fine, which indicates another problem
because the debian/rules clean isn't cleaning up properly :)

Trying to work this one out at the moment for our local install,
but I'm going to have to stop shortly for other things so will
continue next week if possible.
