I like it! I'd add one tip: talk to upstream and figure out how they
want patches to be submitted.

I've linked it from http://vcs-pkg.org (which is starting to need
a breaking down into subsections) and would be happy to have it
there, since it is a packaging topic, and vcs-pkg is more about
packaging while distributions@ was more intended for higher-level
stuff. Let me know if you agree and/or need help.
