Now, I mean no offense by this at all, but shouldn't you leave the
packaging duties of this security-critical package to somebody with more
in-depth knowledge of how it works?  It seems fairly obvious that you
have not yet actually used the package at all.  Will you be using it
once it's packaged?  If I'm going to be running OpenCA, I certainly want
to know that the packaging is done right.

It's not that I don't trust your ability to learn the package, but I
think it is unwise for somebody to be responsible for this package when
they're not really even clear on the basic functionality of it.
