Hi Nathan

We've also recently begun a programme of Kubuntu Packaging Training.
These are instructor lead sessions ( well I'm the instructor, but lets
leave it at that ;-)

There are some details on, but the next Dojo is Thursday
28th July @ 18:00 UTC. It's delivered a video conference, with slides
and hands on packaging etc...

We also maintain a Kubuntu Ninja "Yellow Belts" group on Launchpad.

Hope this is useful,
