I don't understand why this is only point 5. Setting up a custom
repository easily usable is quite easy... and done already
(mozilla.debian.net has been mentioned; I also happen to provide
unofficial packages on ocaml.debian.net). I don't see why points 1-4
should be addressed by the project as a whole (and a prerequisite of 5):
each PPA maintainer can have its own tool / policy / proposals before
everyone agrees on something more unified.

On the other hand, custom repositories are always restricted to
architectures their maintainer have access to. It would be nice if the
autobuilding network would allow submitting jobs not targeted for
official suites. Something a PPA maintainer could use to get the binary
packages for architectures he doesn't have access to.
