Yes, they are all emacs lisp packages that need 'some emacs', or a
specific version of emacs to run on.

Romain maintains a debian archive at which
provides builds for debian stable and unstable. When he does a new
snapshot, he also uploads to the PPA.

Since soyuz recently gained per-package ACLs, I've just requested upload
access for him at the technical board, so if this gets granted, he could
upload himself.
