A report from pgCon 2013
I saw this posting in a few sources and read through most of it. It sounded appealing but now after reading this article, it falls short of what I was hoping for.
I really just want a way that I (as an upstream) can get my package to users ASAP after I do a release and without the semi-random collection of patches that tend to get added.
That does not seem to be what this is though :-/

As an upstream developer I always run whohas before every release to find out what distro patches/bugs I may have missed and then merge or fix those when there is time.
It sounds like what you want is one of these, that way you get to do the packaging instead of distributions and you can target all distros instead of just Ubuntu.

Wow, never knew about whohas. *Adds to personal packaging tools comps file* Thanks!
