We mentioned it a few times during the weekly meetings we have on
tuesdays. We have been busy lately with the 1.0.0 release!
This is hard for me to estimate the repercussions as I lack good
knowledge of the JS ecosystem. It does not look like a trivial task in
any case :)

That's very nice to know. Thanks! I was afraid I might need to do all
that myself :D
For now, I am focusing in having only the server and worker packages
(without any web ui) updated in debian with the latest upstream release.
There is a small limitation in pybuild regarding building multiple
binary packages from the same source package (each located in
subdirectories). I talked with p1otr on #debian-python and he told me he
may have a fix uploaded soon(tm).
In the meantime, I am struggling to make the tests run and docs build
with only debian dependencies.
Once this is done, I will work on web ui packages. Hopefully,
buildbot-www* packages will have gotten rid of some dependencies which
would make debian integration easier. I'll surely shime in #debian-js to
ask for guidance.
