It is nice that BAli-Phy is available using package managers. However, it is not available on the current Ubuntu LTS release (v18.04).

Is it possible to make it available from an LTS (which I imagine most users, er, use), or are there significant roadblocks?

If this is not possible, it is not a big deal, as building it is straightforward (and the precompiled binaries are almost as convenient).

Yeah, this is an issue. Debian testing and Ubuntu active development (currently fossa) will get packages automatically in a few days. But for old Ubuntu releases, I have to build packages specifically and then distribute them. The easiest way right now is probably to download the tarball instead of using a package manager.

Making DEB packages for older ubuntu should be doable. I am already compiling them through github actions on an older ubuntu. Making a DEB could also be done, but I have to figure out how to do that in this context.

Then I have to upload them to a PPA, I guess.

As a side comment, I personally use Debian testing for servers and Debian "unstable" for desktop/laptop. I like the rolling releases better than the Ubuntu static release model.

I'm going to try to figure out how to run a DEB creation process from github actions.

Ok, kewl. I was more curious than anything, although I imagine it will eventually be useful.
