Hey Gregory,

One of the things we have struggled with in the past is the fact that the Debian packages are, necessarily, way behind. I would like to set up a repo that contains the needed packages (at first for deb, but then for rpm based repositories as well) for users to get their packages directly from us IF they choose to do so. I am in no way saying we should not create packages for Debian, but this would allow us to have more control and also would allow us to create packages that use clang instead of GCC for Linux.

I am going to set this up on an AWS server. I will let you guys know about my progress. If anyone would like to help or has any advice, let me know.

thank you for putting new efforts into this, I think this is a great idea. ;)

But I’d beg you to not start afresh again. The work of preparing the source packages already has been done for the Nextspace project: https://github.com/trunkmaster/nextspace/tree/master/Packaging/Debian

These are the GNUstep packages plus those needed for Nextspace and they are all based on the Debian ones, just renamed.

It would be of great use you could provide the binary packages for this. I’d prefer them to not be hosted on AWS, but that’s a minor issue to me.

I also tried to set up a PPA for GNUstep (https://launchpad.net/~gnustep), but I did not achieve much progress regarding CI/CD, because some of the automatic imports of GNUstep repositories are failing due to a bug of LaunchPad itself. So I’d rather prefer a CD approach based on the source packages mentioned above, provided by a custom Debian repository.

Thank you
