After many years of packaging work by many contributors, today I was able to install native debian package.

Out of 101 direct dependencies and 223 total dependencies, only 7 of them needed to be handled outside of debian packages.

autprefixer-rails gem had to be installed from because debian does not have browserify packaged and building with rollup and webpack created a broken bundle.

6 gems had to be vendored because diaspora is still using sass-rails which is dead upstream and debian already moved to sassc-rails.

I still need to integrate systemd unit files to handle starting and stopping of the services automatically.
