What will be involved in bringing CI Train up to speed for derived
distributions? Currently CI Train is able to do releases targeted at a
"series" (trusty, utopic), or arbitrary PPAs.

The PPA option would have been a lot easier from a CI Train
perspective, requiring no code changes on our end.

I'm happy to do the work, all I need is a little guidance on what is
actually necessary to make it happen.
