My `mud' project would have made this trivial. An auto-builder
designed to target the contrib repository for simple ports like these.

Unfortunately, it wasn't accepted as a Garage project and the workflow
for responding to a rejection is so utterly useless (read
non-existent) that I've no idea what status it'll end up in.

You can see the thoughts on it outlined here[1]:


Although it'd be possible to create outside of the Garage, the main
benefit is adding these many debs to the contrib repository, meaning
that people doing simple ports can contribute to mud, rather than
setting up YAR (Yet Another Repo) - thus simplifying the task for



[1] The garage project application process is even more annoying in
that it doesn't seem to save your applications, thus muddying the
workflow for dealing with a rejection even further.
