[slurm-users] Deb packages for Ubuntu

We found that the upstream Debian scrips weren't quite what we wanted, either.

Here's what we use in case it's useful: https://github.com/NVIDIA/nephele-packages 

On github the latest is Slurm 21.08 and Ubuntu 20.04. Internally we've updated to 22.05 and 22.04 but that hasn't made it externally yet. But if what you're mostly interested in is how to break up the components, then you won't care because that hasn't really changed.

If there haven't been major changes in filenames, what about taking the latest available source package (debian/ tree) from either Ubuntu or Debian, rebasing it on the tarball of your chosen version, and adapting (basically changelog entry, perhaps copyright)?
That would preserve the package structure and dependencies as much as possible...

HTH, Steffen

PS. You probably will setup the database from scratch?
