I've used PPAs as a developer before and I hated the experience but
that's probably because launchpad (the web interface) is garbage.

I've had a better experience with the OpenSUSE build service [1] which
despite its name lets you build for Ubuntu, Debian, OpenSUSE, Redhat,
Fedora, CentOS and Arch Linux. You have to provide the packaging files
for each packaging system though. It also supports more architectures
than just x86_64.
