To throw another project into the mix, I've been working on building
master packages with delorean[1] for a last few months(currently
building for fedora but planning on adding more), the specs being
uses are based off the RDO packaging.

The plan we're slowly working towards will be to allow this packaging
hopefully become the upstream of the RDO packaging for the released
projects. We're also hoping to allow contributions from the whole RDO
community via gerrithub [2].

If anybody is interested the packaging we are maintaining is on
github[3], with a yum repository being created for every commit into the
monitored openstack projects[4]

So ya count me in for any discussions happening.
