Dropbox in Debian Squeeze

I decided to give Debian Lenny +1 distribution, Squeeze a try on my work desktop. Things look really good and easy for one of my favorite cloud services, Dropbox. To install (instead of the old manual methods) just enable the non-free repository in your /etc/apt/sources.list:
deb http://mirrors.kernel.org/debian/ squeeze main contrib non-free
Then you can simply install Dropbox with:
apt-get install dropbox

"package not found"

Hey Ron

Looks like the package was automatically removed by some QA script:

I will try to contact the maintainer

I have a functioning Dropbox sources.list entry "deb http://dropbox.nwlinux.us lucid main" and a mirror.list entries of "deb-i386 http://linux.dropbox.com/ubuntu lucid main" and "deb-amd64 http://linux.dropbox.com/ubuntu lucid main"

FWIW, I have prepared Debian packages that are going to be included in Debian. You can get them here. There are packages for Debian 6.0 (Squeeze) and for Wheezy/Unstable.

Hope this helps.
