Yes, alive and kicking. I'm still willing to adopt it. Maybe you can 
give me some hints resp. thoughts about what you wanted to fix and I'll 
try to get one together until next week. There are some Python 
application packages in Debian, so I will try to keep to their structure.
Just one question that comes to my mind. As far as I remember, eric3 
byte-compiles its files on installation. Should the installation script 
be patched or bypassed completely, because byte-compilation is done by 
dh_python (and on Python upgrade, too)? There is also a Python policy, 
as far as I remember, I just can't find the link right now

I would be most thankful for any hints.
