@ftpmasters, is there more design documentation than the e-mail³ from Joerg?

@ftpmasters, what do you think of this approach? Would (ultimately)
switching to OBS be acceptable, provided that we could make it work for
Debian? Do you believe it may be worth it for the arguments given by Héctor?

If the ftpmasters agree that this is worth investigating, I guess I can.

Several questions about the OBS service:
- you claimed the DNS entry, but haven't done anything with it yet. Is
  that correct?
- do you have server space to run the service on (I don't)? I guess I
  could request a VM via the GPLHost⁴ if you don't have anything in mind
