I'm not sure what you mean.  Do you want these scripts to go into 389 
upstream?  And use the 389 git repo for this?  Is that how it works in 
the debian world?  For fedora, for example, all of the build 
scripts/spec files are kept in the fedora repo - pkgs.fedoraproject.org 
- how does debian handle it?

Well, you don't have to use sourceforge - github is nice.  But yes, 
there should be an official place for debian build scripts - either they 
should go into the debian build system, or into 389 upstream.  I'd 
rather have the former.
