Thanks Helmut.

At least that gives an overview of the architecture. Not too many surprises. It is still a bit unclear to me how the actual packages are created. I can’t seem to find any scripts for building and packaging the individual packages. Is that all handled locally on the various maintainers computers? Or have I missed something completely obvious here?
