I didn't mean I have a newer one, just that someone should make one. I
don't know who the Ubuntu package maintainer is, or is it the
Debian package maintainer, but you should check for a new one and
contact them if there isn't one. Same about lack of an agent. Or you
could do it yourself - building a package is probably worth it if you
have hundreds of guests.
