I took a quick look at the package source obtained via:
This Ubuntu package is being maintained as an official Ubuntu package
by Canonical's Stéphane Graber, *the* LXC and LXD project leader
As such, the package has received much love, very professionally
packaged and very mature.

golang-any-shared-dev can be ignored for now: it can simply be
replaced by "golang-any" or similar in Debian.
But wait, Ubuntu's Go actually has shared library support!? What!?
How? Wow! Amazing stuff! Definitely news to me.
and the patch by Michael Hudson-Doyle. Okay, Cc'ing Michael too. :-)
So, I guess the first step would be to package
golang-gopkg-lxc-go-lxc.v2 and golang-petname, or simply grab these
existing Ubuntu packages, make a few minor changes to debian/control
and debian/changelog, file ITPs to the Debian BTS, and finally upload
them to Debian.
I do not see too many hurdles after that, at least I hope not. ;-)
And since the Ubuntu lxd package is the upstream here, I like to think
of the Debian lxd package as the downstream derivative, so we will
likely always wait for Stéphane to release -0ubuntu1, then apply any
necessary patches required for Debian, and upload that as -1. What do
you think? :-)
Also, should the Debian lxd be team-maintained by the pkg-lxc team or
the pkg-go team? What do you think?
