In lack of public web space I have temporarily uploaded the packages to sourceware
If everything looks good, you can move them to the release directory.
Right now I'm using more or less the same build script as Gerrit.

I think there are still packages around which require specific versions
of berkdb. When I have time I can repackage the db packages to use
alternatives. db-2 and db-3.1 should also be repackaged to use /usr/share/doc
instead of /usr/doc, so that we can get rid of /usr/doc one day.
