I can't claim credit for the original packaging work, just for updating 
it for 4.0.10 which was just a trivial tweak to the version+hash!

I had also been sitting on the sidelines; I have only been using it for 
a few weeks for GitLab CI testing, but so far with great success.  It's 
still rough around the edges in some respects, but it does look like it 
will continue to mature and be a useful tool.  For relatively simple 
packages like libtiff, it's already there, but could be enhanced to 
support the new compression codecs.
