In the past, I have thought about these more as build tasks then
anything else. I actually have plans to incorporate most of this
functionality into sinan. For example, I have just finished
integrating functionality similar to reltool in sinan and have
somewhat midterm plans for dpkg/rpm/pkgsrc etc.
I really do think of the release building as a build time activity.
However, the package conversion I am much more ambivalent about. If it
ends up in the 'package manager' I am completely cool with that and
will just front it with sinan :P
