Perhaps I should be more direct. I am interested in helping with this,
but I've never been involved with deploying a web-based tool for the
Ubuntu project. I have no idea where to begin. If I had server space
somewhere, I'd JFDI. Alas, I don't.

Anyways, I just set up an instance locally for a small reprepro
created archive I have. There are a few hard coded Debian specifics,
but it was simple enough. Of course, it would be more work to get it
production ready.

If anyone can point me in the right direction, I'd be appreciative.
