This is in the works.  Myself and Shaleh ahve talked about it, and Shaleh and
Jim Pick have also been discussing it.  I am sure Jim agrees with my that any
help will be much appreciated ;) In any case, I believe the plan was to be able
to add a line to your /etc/apt/sources.list something like this:
or something liek that, and be able to download .debs of all gnoem cvs nightly.
obviously a beefy machien would be good for that, I know Jim doesn't ahve a
terrific one (at least from past postings?) and I have a p233mmx with 64mb ram
(and greatly limited disk space...I could compile e, imlib, fnlib, esound, and
stringlist prolly ;)  So jump on in! Send an email to Jim, as I'm sure he knows
more about this whole thing than I.  I took a look at the cvs-buildpackage
stuff, but haven't really figured it out yet.
  BTW, even though I dont' really use GNOME per se, I think its' a GREAT
idea. :)

Keep in touch.
