Great idea !
I would strongly suggest to build with SuSE Open Build Service (will be hosted too), because it can be easily shared with other packagers and hopefully you can end with one repo for many Linux distributions. Fred Kiefer already use it for SusE and Fedora packages, and I use it myself for packaging NextSpace project. For small teams sharing the work is better.

Hey guys,

One of the things we have struggled with in the past is the fact that the Debian packages are, necessarily, way behind. I would like to set up a repo that contains the needed packages (at first for deb, but then for rpm based repositories as well) for users to get their packages directly from
us IF they choose to do so.  I am in no way saying we should not create
packages for Debian, but this would allow us to have more control and also would allow us to create packages that use clang instead of GCC for Linux.

I am going to set this up on an AWS server. I will let you guys know about my progress. If anyone would like to help or has any advice, let me know.

Thanks, GC
