This is actually the sort of answer I was hoping for.

While we've had packaging scripts in our repo, these were never any kind
of priority. I don't think it makes sense to change that. But I also see
no reason not to maintain packages for our own use within the ASF somewhere.

Assuming a "trusted repo" is available somewhere in our infrastructure,
I'd be happy to have a go at producing a package for 1.9.x. I expect
we're able to test packages and deployments before going live, yes?
