... because we rely on fpm-within-docker images for each OS and version we support.


  • Implement #641 and #642
  • Build a container image that has fpm, rpm, and dpkg
  • In this container, build a package for every combination of supported package format (rpm and deb) and Python version (3.5 and 3.6) using the executables from #642 with package versions based on #641
  • Push these four packages to every OS we support (2 Fedoras and 3 Ubuntus)
  • Push these packages for other rpm/deb operating systems that offer the dependencies with the same package names (e.g., Mint, Debian)
  • Use the new machinery to build packages for other operating systems where dependencies have different package names (e.g., CentOS)
