What is OBS? Open Build Service? An idea. A quick search indicates only about 10 distros are supported.

My thinking is even when individuals wanted to host packages, users with each distro typically do not know packagers. How do typical users who want to help know about testing packages? They would first look in the Trinity web site.

Possibly the first step to this question is a link or set of links at the Trinity web site home page to "Unofficial Development Branch Testing Packages" just under "For developers and alpha/beta testers."

Is the GIT repo "packaging" section available to host a testing package set?
