Guillaume Desmottes, working for Collabora Ltd.

> 1) What do you build?

The Telepathy Stack: telepathy-gabble, telepathy-glib, telepathy-salut,
The Farsight Stack (used for the video-chat activity): farsight,
gstreamer-plugins-farsight, libjingle

and sugar-presence-service.

Most of the time I package mine own new releases (as I'm upstream of the
presence-service, Gabble and Salut) or include a patch I just wrote to
fix some issue.

I also occasionally package latest stable releases of the rest of the
stack when I need one new feature or I know it improves general

Directly to Koji.

My builds are submitted from teach.laptop.org to Koji.

No idea :)

Hope that help,
