Off-hand, I'd say we'd need a fixed archive (repository) structure. Or
possibly write it into a config file. I've written up a series of
scripts I've titled spc-rpm-<function> like, spc-rpm-build,
spc-rpm-release, etc. They're along the same lines as package submission
tools. Submission tools could theoretically allow multiple users to add
packages to one archive. mentors.debian.net uses machine accounts for
each user and scp. Its possible to use anonymous upload, and have a
script run on the server that checks package signatures, and possibly
some other validation, and then adds them to the repository. Like
always, just brainstorming.
