Except  it won't work when the dependencies are not the same between Debian and Ubuntu. 

(Unless the PPA repo is Debian specific: https://launchpad.net/debian/+ppas — however, a quick 1min look at this doesn't show packages actually being uploaded here, so maybe this is not supported anyway.)

So… basically a PPA? I’m for it. (There is no reason why Debian can’t use a Ubuntu PPA IMO.)

Hey guys,

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.

Thanks, GC
