    Not the Debian repository;  the LedgerSMB repository at apt.ledgersmb.org.

   It means it's not ready to be uploaded to Debian yet but is otherwise 
usable.  Or should be;  if there are circumstances where it does not, I need 
to know.

   In what way?  On which distro(s)?  

   Admittedly I get a lot of practice of practice installing LedgerSMB 
packages (although not on Linux Mint, yet, since I haven't tested it there 
yet); but once a particular version of the package is working, getting it 
running on a new or update install just involves updating the apache 
configuration for use on my LAN (I use linux containers with different distros 
hosted on one of my servers for testing), then log in to setup.pl with the 
'ledgersmb' DB Admin user password I set during the package install, and add 
or update the company database.
