Feedback request about the Alba Upstream to Debian packaging effort


the Alba[1] synchrotron radiation facilities, recently switch to
Debian for their OS. They are part of the Tango[2] control system
community which contain most of the European Synchrotron Radiation
Facilities and others[3]. At least three instituts have already
choosen Debian (partially Soleil, ESRF, petraIII, and Alba).

The next meeting of this community will be held in Prague[4] next
week. During this meeting, Alba will present their plan about
packaging "Collaborative and automated Packaging"[5].

The idea is to propose a pipeline via a .gitlab-ci.yml[6] file which
should be added to the upstream repository and/or in a repository
dedicated to packaging, in order to generate debian packages ready to
install software on their facility or ready to upload into Debian.

Since I am not at all a specialist of gitlab-ci, I would like your
advice on the pipeline, and also on the numbering scheme propose by
Alba. In fact all feedback which should smooth the upstream to debian

Thanks for considering.
