Yes, that is possible. However, not setup currently. Today zigo is just driving
package builds manually. I expect we'll talk more about this in Barcelona.

One of the goals I've been working towards, is providing the generic
infrastructure for packagers to use which ever tooling they are used too rather
then force a tool on to the packager.  Today zigo has a build process in place
he is familiar however I'd likely use different build tools for packages for
openstack-infra.   Which, to me, is perfectly fine.

I wish I could, I'd be more then happy to give an update of the work on the
openstack-infra side.
