David's response:

All our packaging can be checked out of git from git://dev.gnutelephony.org/project/packaging.git and then running
./bootstrap.pl to fetch the individual git repos for each package we are locally maintaining. We also have debian archives complete with source packages at "deb[-src] http://dev.gnutelephony.org/archive/wheezy/" They match up with existing debian packaging policies and practices close enough that they should be easy to reuse elsewhere, though I favor dh7 over cdbs. We are focused on wheezy at the moment, but we had built stuff for squeeze in the
past, and most of our packages probably still does build for squeeze.

Their archive does have a squeeze section. If that works we can either import it (if it also builds) or put a a how-to on the wiki about using it.

I don't remember what the reason was for backporting the specific version of Ekiga. Parkes has version 3.2.7, which should fulfill the requirements in any case.

GNU SIP Witch is available in Wheezy at the earliest. Looks non-trivial to backport. Bayonne is only Sid, and only in m68k. I've emailed David Sugar to ask if he's still interested in getting this included.

Just a note that ekiga is in lenny-backports for amd64, and can be synced in by the backports script.
i don't know how hard it would be to build i386/mipsel packages from it.
