Daily builds for server packages

Registered by Chuck Short on 2009-11-04

Upstream projects such as PHP and Apache prefer that users who are reporting bugs with their software to use the latest unmodified software in order to test fixes. We should provide a PPA for users to install unmodified upstream software so we can provide quality bug reports for our upstreams.

ttx review (20091201) -- Split work per package, please adjust assignees if necessary. Looks good to me now.
mdz 2009-12-01 - user stories are missing actions and results. what does the user do in order to meet their need, and what happens in response to their action?
mdz 2009-12-02 - should be updated to use a separate PPA for each package, so people opt in separately
jib 2009-12-03 - I'm assuming that once tickets are filed, the 'standard' procedure kicks him. Approved under that assumption.

jib review 2010-1-13: Priority for alpha3 is to set up the team + branch and get two projects integrated. I nominate the samba & mysql projects. Using what we learned from this setup we will refine the process for the other projects.
