It's still under consideration, but I was hoping to go with standard pre-
packaged debian packages, versus getting into a DIY compile/install/config 
cycle.
  Unfortunately, neither package is still under active development.  I briefly 
considered JavAPRSrv, but 1) I'm using SBCs with small RAM footprints, and 
don't really have room for a Java VM, and 2) I'm morally opposed to Pete's 
closed-source approach to software.  This history of APRS software is littered 
with good software that was abandoned by the author, even after being paid to 
develop and maintain it.
