Default No OpenCMS Debian package?

Hi all, Anybody know why OpenCMS isn't in the package archive? Not sure on the legalities of it but might it be something to do with the LGPL it's licensed under?

LGPL is fine according to the Debian FSF standards, as far as I know.
The reason is probably just that nobody took the effort. For CMSses in
Debian, check eg. drupal, wordpress, zope, typo. Although usually
there's no real reason to install anything outside /var/www, so
installing your favourite cms from upstream is almost as easy as doing a
aptitude install.
