To people who want their packages hosted publicly but don't feel 
comfortable to package for the Parabola repository I recommend hosting a 
clone of abslibre.git on Gitorious, and to serve built packages I 
recommend following https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Pacman_tips#Custom_local_repository or asking on this mailing list to 
merge the Gitorious clone including added/modified build recipes with 
Parabola's abslibre.git (it could take time to build and publish merged 
packages depending on packager availability). After they are comfortable 
doing that, they can use and learn Libretools (https://wiki.parabola.nu/Libretools), used by Parabola packagers to build and upload packages to 
the Parabola main repository.

If many are interested in this I recommend keeping a single abslibre.git 
clone to simplify merging with Parabola's repository.
