For packaging http://www.vectorlinux.com/forum2/index.php?topic=1380.0  I PM'd johnB316, but he hasn't been around for a while.

Well, M0E-lnx started the vpackager project; might be good to talk to him...

http://www.vectorlinux.com/forum2/index.php?topic=1380.0 is definitely a good howto to get you started.
vpackager (if used correctly) has the capabilities of building fully-up-to-standards packages too.

Either way you want to do it, 
You'd need to contact johnb316 to get you access to the server so you can upload the packages...

Problem is JohnB316 hasn't been online for almost 3 weeks now. I sure hope he's alright....
Most music on my soundcloud page was arranged in programs running on VL.

Perhaps we should have a consolation thread or something like that when he comes back.
