regarding ci... i am not sure how useful that would be for me. right
now, i just run a wheezy VM inside qemu and install stuff by hand in
there. since i need a clean VM every time, setting up the whole CI env
would seem to be a significant overhead, no?

besides, i expect the build process to run tests.. autopkgtest i usually
run by hand later, if at all - i am usually more concerned about testing
with the POC data from advisories...

but it would be great to have a more standard and, more importantly,
documented setup, as I have spent quite a bit of personal time finding
the right workflow for that kind of stuff here (which mostly revolves
around pdebuild, cowbuilder, vmdebootstrap and qemu right now).

i'd be happy to participate in such a documentation / standardization
effort in any case.
