Opened the akonadi package (first one alphabetically), and the author of the 
latest changelog entry is Nikolay Romanov <lum [ynwim] live.ru>

I haven't inspected all of them, just akonadi. But for it, there are sources 
(and I haven't inspected que quality). That doesn't mean the work done for 
those packages can be reused.

Making a quick and dirty package for yourself can be done in minutes if for 
your use case some things are irrelevant. But that is not normally the case of 
official packages.
