We are already at that stage for package. you just need a make command 
to build an RPM.

Jan Heylen and I are discussing more scripting that produce a rpm 
repository (directly usable from a package manager), keep it updated 
with nightly build (and version build) and sync it with 
https://www.mercurial-scm.org/release/ and 
https://www.mercurial-scm.org/nightly/
