Bâtisseur is a broad system for making Haiku package development simple and quick. It will borrow concepts from OpenSuse Build and Canonical's Launchpad [Specifically Soyuz]. Some documents pertaining to it can be found in this repo. The end goal will be a modern build system for packages that can scale up or down and a system of achievements for participating in it.
