I'm all for it. I build my own packages since years due to this.
clang >8.0  and gold linker are a must to get anything modern to work under Debian and the debian repo versions are not supporting any of this.

Hi Greg,

I’d be interested to know if there are any updates on this. One of the most popular distributions on Pine64’s PinePhone is Mobian which is Debian with mobile UI added on top. 

I have a build script working for Mobian[1] but up-to-date packages would be great as they’d be easier to specify as dependencies.

I’m not sure if I can help at all, but I’m super excited to see this project get off the ground. It will make managing my Linux boxes so much easier. I don’t have any particular expertise here, but am happy to help with testing or similar.

Subject: Debian Package Repository...
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
