Strictly, the only thing that the ftpmasters are worried about is the
layout of the archive, and that's not really very tricky. But we'll
just assume you were uing the ftpmaster address to contact the buildd

I'm sure there'll be some problems with whatever you propose (there's
always problems with everything I propose anyway), but they're rarely
that big. And there's now way of working out exactly what they are until
you make the proposal...

Basically, start by just doing everything yourselves, then work out
(a) what bits you end up building that need to be put on the ftp site,
and (b) what scripts you have that can conceivably be run a little bit
more automatically.

(If you're already at that point, just start talking specifics)
