Demo and packaging done

After some re-assessment of our goals for GSoC, we decided to bring out the standalone version of beacon and continue with the integration later.

I got sponsored for sysadmin-test by Fedora-infra and have set the demo up here. To access it, one needs to create an account on and then use that test account.

Also, I finally managed to get over my packaging blues with some kind help from Rakesh Pandit and have submitted a review request here.

On the whole, this GSoC has been fun (I know the project is not finished yet, but the GSoC phase is coming to a close). This year, it was not as much about GSoC as it was about implementing a product which would be guaranteed in use by the community. I interacted with the community more than last time.

Last but not the least, a heartfelt thanks to a very cool mentor, an amazing upstream (esp. Nandeep), and a very supportive community.
