Traffic Bandwidth on repo:
Expected bandwidth is low. I guess 10Mbit would be nice but don't expect
too much traffic as nobody is interested. It scales with the frequency of
this mailing list:)
Also I think the tools will not have big changes and updates as this is
much work and we are few.

I feel that I will grab the newest source make it build smoothly and make
packages using some Debian maintainer tools.
Ant then there will be the newest version of the tools! be sitting around,
and maybe a new version every year with little change.
