Hi all,

This a request to relaunch Packaging Team by giving it a bit another
meaning that it has before.

The main idea I see for this new/old team is:

    Let people start sugar in any environment they have in most
    convenient way.

The team will cover not only questions how sugar is packaged for
major GNU/Linux distribution but also:

* having Bazaar as a central place of all (out of distro) efforts
* building packages that are not(yet/well) packaged
* support distros that don't have packaged sugar
* run daily snapshot of sugar in as many as possible environments
* take care of Sugar Platform dependencies (how many, are they packaged
  and make custom build otherwise)
* support meta sugar distribution ie just a bunch of repositories of
  sugar packages that can be attached to existed system to run sugar

BTW, maybe "Packaging" is not appropriate name, any ideas?
