This is exactly of what I talked about in my GAR presentation :-)
Remember the discussion about pbuild? It already contains some
work towards this, however in the general case there is still
something to do. Feel free to look at the gar/v2-pbuild branch
for details.

In pbuild it will be possible to define which modulations should
be build on what hosts, modulations will be executed in parallel
and monitorable with multitail and package assembly will follow
that automatically.

Deploying things to testing/ is another step we discussed on
Sunday after you left. The protocol will be posted when ready :-)

Best regards
