Vasyl seems to be preparing beta packages of Kodi 19.0; this seems like
an appropriate use of experimental (until 19 is properly released) and
possibly backports (for backports to buster). That'll get the
autobuilding and the distribution covered and would just need a Debian
Maintainer account that the multimedia team could then give upload
access to for the appropriate packages?
