I have had a look into packaging ReMoko for Debian. Here are some issues
that you might want to look into, to make ReMoko easily packagable.

 * The could be improved. Have a look at [1], how I did this
for zhone’s 
 * It would be great if you could provide “official” source tarballs of
your release. helps you with the sdist command, but you need to
tell it what files it should include. Again, you can have a look at how
Jan Lübbe did that for zhone at [2].
 * Your configuration module just looks for “settings.cfg”, without
specifying a path. Something like sys.env['HOME'] + "settings.cfg" might
be more sensible.
 * The server source looks good, “make dist” produces a sensible
tarball. You might want to change the product name and version number in though.
 * What exactly is the server for? It seems it listens on a tcp socket
for commands, which is connected by the UI to send the events over
bluetooth. Why don’t you bind to the IP address? Why don’t you
use dbus for that?

I think it would be great to have a remoko Debian package, but there is
some work left. Are you going to continue remoko development, now that
GSoC is over? 

Greetings and thanks,
