I've read a few posts from people frustrated at the problems with installing LibreCAD 2.2, so here's me as a non-programmer who hasn't learnt how to package software trying to do something about that problem.
Updating an Ubuntu PPA is an obvious way to get LibreCAD updates out to users. The 2.2 branch is getting updates so there are still plans for a release
Sorry for writing to all your email addresses at once, I just wanted to make sure I got through. You have an Ubuntu PPA
... and I am wondering if this will be updated or if LibreCAD should try and find a new person willing to run a PPA. LibreCAD 2.2 has been at beta for years but is not getting much attention so I'm hoping that making it more easily available would help this situation. Please let me know so we can find the best way to make this software more available.
I Scott is not going to update his PPA from v 1.0.0 beta 5 then we need to find someone else who can so LibreCAD 2.2 can get out to users. Anyone here have the skills or interest in setting up a PPA?
There was a suggestion back in August 2019 to set up automatic builds of LibreCAD:
Gentoo does not package binaries, so it may not be particularly useful for anyone outside Gentoo.
I think it would be great if LibreCAD 2.2 could be also distributed as a "portable", perhaps the same way Blender distributes, or using AppImage, which are auto-built which will help users adopt the latest code and help with testing.
