  I'm not using launchpad. :-) I've been using a utility called
"reprepro" that's been very useful. I'm also using dupload to upload the
signed binary packages.

  I may try pbuilder in the future, as building in a chroot is a good
idea. Right now I have package building working good, and just added
support for building multiple configurations as packages
(, which can all go in the repository.

  I wrote a cronjob  that checks for files uploaded by dupload, and then
it uses reprepro to add them to the repository. Right now the problem
seems to be GPG key handling. I'm having the same problem with the yum
repository, which I setup with createrepo.
