Thanks to Raphael for taking the time to centralize all the material we
had about this topic, that's great!

To me, there is one point to underline and on which we should focus
during the design phase: 

    "How do we synchronize the - official - VCS repository and the 
     Debian archive?"

That's for me one of the main design issue to solve.

We started writing a script a few months ago (for the OrphanedPackages
project) which parses the unstable Source.gz file and import new source
packages with svn-inject. This script was designed to work in a CRON

If that can help, the script is still hosted in the collab-maint
