as part of the Nextspace project/repo Patrick Georgi and me have been working 
on Debian packaging a bit. But for me it's still unfinished as you will have to 
get clang 8 from backports, which makes packaging for Buster a little bit 
complicated (and is much easier for sid).

This pull request contains some efforts, that work. I won't be too hard to port 
them back for GNUstep packages:

In the meantime I installed Arch/Manjaro on my development laptop as you are 
provided with much more recent packages when using a rolling release. And the 
Arch PKGBUILD system is quite easy to set up, so I've created some Arch 
packages using clang and libobjc2. These are compiled from git sources and thus 
provide some sort of continous delivery for development purposes:


That said I'd happily provide information on how to retrigger builds for the 
app/project you maintain to deliver a fresh build if you wish.

One would have to add, that openSUSE's Open Build Service currently only 
provides x86_64 packages for Arch PKGBUILD files.

This is not the case for Debian and RPM spec files. So I would of course add 
packaging instructions for additionall distributions and architectures in case 
anybody would like to provide these.

So far. Stay sound and healthy

P.S.: For Manjaro users (I really like it); Add a panel to the top of the 
screen, add a global menu there and set GNUstep to use the Sombre.theme from 
Bertrand Dekoninck. From a optical point of view it integrates nicely, I think.
