channel it was noted that Ubuntu/Debian's packages are generally out
of date and I was pointed at:


However this repo only packages the core server but not any of the
plugins. Before I spend too much time delving into the intricacies of
packaging Erlang code with common build-infrastructure I thought I'd
better check:

1. Does anyone already package the plugins as debs?
2. If not, is anyone currently working on it?
3. If not, would patches adding debian/ to the source tree be acceptable?

Assuming I don't get lucky....

the plugins from one source repository as I'm not sure there is an
easy way to create a pristine tarball with out-of-tree source

Do the plugins share a common version ID? From what I can see the
"make co" is essentially the HEAD of all the sub-dir plugins. I
suspect this means the versions will have to be something like
