Having a custom VM seems like a high maintenance way of doing this. For another project, we're using Azure Pipelines to generate an apt package repo directly from the CI pipeline. There are pipeline actions for doing all of the required steps.

I'm already using Azure Pipelines for Linux and Windows CI of libobjc2, though I'm not building packages. If we want package builds out of that flow, I'd be very happy to take a PR to add it (we'd probably want to only run that pipeline on releases).

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
