A few python packages from pypi, npm and a self-build nginx to get some
extensions in that are currently not available in the official build.

Sure, if you have any ideas what we can package? I don't think we have
much packages that are not from Debian :)

I think that in general the entire problem of deployment is very
interesting for the Galaxy community and we have a lot of ideas how to
make it better in/with Galaxy. Not sure about Debians role here, as we
are aiming for a reproducible installation of tools over time.
I will organise a BoF at BOSC to talk in a more general way about
deployment w/wo docker, packages, bioboxes, brew, conda, easyinstall and
so on ... would be great if you can join!
Thanks for caring!
