Comment(by hellais):

 I haven't fully looked at how the debian package is being built, I can
 tell you however why it is hanging there.

 When you launch runui.py it starts a web server, but it does not put the
 process in the background or daemonize. What we should do is either write
 a wrapper that properly daemonizes runui (maybe non trivial) or simply put
 it in the background with for example a &.
