The version of the client that we're going to push next week already
supports this. Anyone unfortunate enough to have attended my talk at the
Paris AMM will have seen me do a live demo of downloading and installing
the SOTA Client .deb package to my laptop, and then using the SOTA
Server/Client to push packages and download and install them on my machine.

I'll see if we can make a step-by-step guide for that process available.
We had to do a bit of magic out-of-band to generate authentication
credentials on the fly - provisioning is still a work in progress. But
we've also kicked off an exciting new "RVI Provisioning" project to work
through those issues.

Right now we have a custom build server that bundles the SOTA Client
with the credentials it needs and creates a user-specific .deb - that's
not really fit for human consumption. But we can for sure share the
unprovisioned / generic deb (32-/64-bit) packages when we make the next
client release.

We would *love* to have an excuse to add Debian package repository
support to the product (i.e. scraping indexes, processing dependencies).
If there are people out there with these requirements, please do raise
your hands so that we can get this on the roadmap.
