Mainly brave volunteers with a yeeloong which they are not
depending on it for anything important. They could install orchid in a 
directory or
on a partition and help compile the remaining bits [1] and hammer out problems. 
Ideally they would have some global knowledge about (debian) building tools and 
to hack around failed builds[2].

The repository is close to working (actually it is working, but because I 
mass-uploaded the .debs they all got assigned priority "standard", which 
confuses debootstrap).
I expect it to be usable in the next few days.


1 the remaining "bits" are actually considerable chunks, with heavyweights
such as qt and gnome and a lot of packages they extend their dependency
tentacles into.
2 failed builds should become increasingly rare as more and more dependencies
are met with official packages.
