Excellent, that is good to see. In addition to pushing packaging
patches to Debian, they need to work with our upstreams too,
especially the Linux kernel community.

It sounds like they are using the Pulp tool for creating binary
archives (including apt). I note that Pulp isn't in Debian yet,
hopefully they consider packaging it. It sounds like they might also
be using Aptly (typoed as Apily?), the upstream project for that was
quite unmaintained, some folks stepped in but more are needed.
