Ok, I guess I will just go the flosoft route then. I will work on
writing gitian descriptors using these binary packages. However, it
looks like right now this means I have to use "Maverick" (11.04) as the
Gitian VM's base install. Since "Maverick" is unsupported for security
updates, this might be unwise for production..

Is anyone able to work on rebuilding flosofts's .deb packages for either
lucid (10.04 LTS) or precise (12.04 LTS) while I work on getting initial
Gitian descriptors using Maverick for now?
