So I wonder whether it makes sense to use the Blends framework to build
these packages. If you ask me it makes perfectly sense and if you have
doubt about the "extra workload" which comes with the artwork packages
I can ensure you that it is perfectly possible to handle this with the
existing blends-dev package.
If you consider this an interesting idea I would love to volunteer porting
these packages to blends-dev. Tiago, I have heard you will join DebConf.
Would you mind spending one hour on this task - I don't think it needs more
time to reproduce the existing binary packages while gaining profit from
the other advantages which come with Blends tools.
