I don't see how OBS may help us. The proposal from Ganneff about
bikesheds was much nicer (ie: using our already existing buildd and FTP
infrastructure, and keeping our quality standard), than then path this
thread is taking.

If we are to propose sub-standard PPA like repositories, I would myself
try to avoid them.
