As usuall anyone is welcome to add the own id to Uploaders. ;-)

I've cloned packaging of singularity (including its Uploaders!) into the
apptainer repository.  It seems there are some missing Build-Depends.  I
have not checked yet since we have a working singularity package now.
My effort was motivated by the need to have *any* package to run
singularity containers.  Since this is solved now I did not (yet)
continued that effort (but as Dmitry said:  If someone might sponsor
me to do this I could think about this. ;-) )

BTW, since I do not speak Go I'm not the best person to work on this.

Kind regards
