The Ring packages are definitely in the repos for Debian SID.
At least, that's where I downloaded them from.

just to be clear what that last reply was implying is that what you ask
is of course possible but typically the upstream developers of a program
are not the ones to maintain distro packages - this is almost always
done by someone within each particular distro - so the usual way to
introduce a new package into your favorite distro is to contact someone
who is already currently maintaining some package for that distro and
ask them to package it (in the case of debian for example that wold be
the debian-rtc group) or to package it yourself and ask to become a new
maintainer yourself (the link in the previous reply)

also - im not sure about fedora but there are already packages for suse,
archlinux, and debian - they are not hosted in the "official" distros
repos but they do exist so installation for most GNU/linux users is not

In a world without walls and fences,
what need have we for Windows or Gates?
