Let me clarify FTP-master takes care of `dak` which is meant to
publish packages, OBS places sources and binaries in a directory and
runs `dpkg-scanpackages` which is suboptimal, I have (locally) added a
hook to plug-in `reprepro` to do this management for me, however I
assume it should not be hard to plug-in `dak`.

Yeah, I had OBS running there, but I had to take it off as hardware
sponsor asked to move away from that machine.

I also have no hardware to run the service, otherwise it'd be online.
I have not bother too much to look for hardware resources.
