Nowadays, as the CD or Container technology getting more and more mature, more and more open source distro provider like OpenSUSE, F-Droid use auto packaging infrastructure to delivery the packages. This can effectively save the time of maintainer. And also it can make the final package much easier to be trusted by users.

According to the nature of `pacman`, `makepkg`, `PKGBUILD`, it would be much easier to implement the automatic build and delivery.

This task depends upon
