Hi Rhonda,

This is just great, thanks a lot for the work! This feels a way nicer
than sharing stuff on proprietary platforms.

A quick question though: are some of these packaged and available in
Debian? How was it installed? Does the team intend to also work on
packaging? How can one add some servers to this, and share the workload
with the team?
