All this sound very nice, however:

* Where are your source packages located?
* Generally, your sponsor(s) would want to test the packages, however that 
would need certain home automation infrastructure to be in place which is not 
available everywhere, so you might need to suggest a way to simulate their 
operation if that is easily possible.
