I've always found otherwise, ie that packaged stuff makes the administrator
of a service spare a lot of time.

I wonder then, if a lot of people prefer deploy a service from upstream's
git repo/cookbooks, what is the purpose of packaging? Who would benefit from
it and who should use package-distros?
