Sometime on Dec 7, Sameer D. Sahasrabuddhe assembled some asciibets to say:

ximian has been adapted to all major distros, so it may work. Only
question is whether red-carpet has been adapted to use debs. ximian
will use its own updated called red-carpet, which is only gui based.
Some of the things that I don't like about red-carpet:
no console mode
doesn't let you force an install without checking for dependencies
sometimes gets versioning wrong
