Out of curiosity Thomas, what in particular are you packaging?

I only ask because i've noticed that the stable Kdenlive installer we
distribute on isn't signed by us, which means it
isn't produced by the Binary Factory (yet a substantial number of the
files within it are, meaning they come from our cache).

Is there any reason for rebuilding Kdenlive yourself?
