I wish I could have been there.

I've been building packages for Ubuntu based on a combination of the
source packages from Ubuntu Cloud Archive and Debian, mixed in with our
own source trees with slight additions here and there.  So far, the
result has been quite satisfactory and a lot easier to work with than
I'd expected at the outset.

tl;dr - count me in.  I build packages for our own deployments, and
would like to get the tools right.
