a) Horst, if in your judgement TikiWiki seems "secure enough" though not (yet) being a debian package do you want to go ahead?
Just some remarks:

  a) There is definitely secure software outside Debian.
  b) Just building a Debian package does not make software secure
     by default.  Often projects build Debian packages for the comfort
     of their users.  Sometimes you can observe that these packages
     are really bad and building and installing the software from scratch
     might be the better option.
  c) A good sign for having people who care for the security of a package
     is only if a package belongs to the Debian *stable* distribution. The
     unstable distribution is no target of the Debian security team (which
     does not mean that single maintainers wouldn't care for the security
     of their packages in unstable - but there is just no guarantee).

Kind regards
