I think that instead of closing this ticket we should work together with Tobe - more people working on it, less work for everybody :)

Tobe, we intend to build packages using our CI system. Want to help?

I think that it is important for us to keep some form of control over the packaging, but your help would be definitely welcome.

I would be willing to help, however I don't really see the advantage of CircleCI over the launchpad PPA system for building Ubuntu packages. (I am new to CircleCI, so correct me if I'm wrong.) Launchpad easily supports building packages for all versions of Ubuntu that are currently supported, while CircleCI only seems to have images available for some Ubuntu versions. Also the launchpad PPA system is tightly integrated with Ubuntu (making it relatively easy to add PPA's for users). Trying to set up a similar system using CircleCI seems like reinventing the wheel to me.

That being said, CircleCI might be a useful tool for building packages for other systems (Windows, Android, ...).

I'm moving this ticket to a project on github as it will have to be broken down in several tasks:
