Hi Ben,

I guess that would be interesting (from source)

Here we can use some effort to upstream fixes so that it is easier to

This comes at the cost of maintaining the kubernetes pkgbase.
I would be interested to hear your thoughts on improvements and or
post-build test scenarios for this (that we can hand to the testers).

This is an interesting one, especially in regards to e.g.
containers-common, which is still a bit weird and only recently we have
found out how it is "supposed to be packaged".
Do you have any improvement suggestions for it and/or test scenarios
that you could think of?

If you have improvement suggestions for this in regards to providing
fixes for upstream, that would be very much appreciated.
Upstream unfortunately does not use their issue tracker anymore and
expects people to send mails.
They are unfortunately also easily offended :S

That would be much appreciated. We can always use help in automating our
things away.
What comes to mind here (apart from the packager workflows) is e.g. our
installation artifact release process and also our CI integration with
archlinux-keyring to detect soon expired keys as soon as possible, to
list a few that are rather pressing and/or fall on our feet from time to
A good place to idle for that would be #archlinux-releng and
#archlinux-projects! :)
