MeeGo, OpenSUSE, Buildroot for actual packaging stuff, for
tightly related distro projects, OBS and, pacman, and for
projects intended for other distros as well there's for example
pulseaudio, and systemd.

I don't think reviewboard was suggested for the packaging itself, we
use OBS already for that. It was about MeeGo-related projects, just
like Fedora's systemd (not really only Fedora's).
