Re: DNF for Debian

Sorry for the late response. I've been busy, and, honestly, also always forgot
to actually answer.

unman seems to be interested, if that's good enough, so there's that.

Personally, I will have to "maintain" the package sets anyway, because I'm
building a lot of Fedora/CentOS packages in an automatic fashion on Debian.

This "maintenance" just means that I'll probably update stuff every half a year
or year, though, essentially "whenever it breaks" (which does tend to happen).

There's inevitably some bitrot involved, but I just don't have the time for
proper maintenance.

It's great if you have both a use case for it and are willingly to take over!

As given in the initial description, I've published source and binary packages
for Debian Unstable/Sid at https://packages.x2go.org/debian-test/pool/main/

Note that the binaries are a bit old by now and would probably like a rebuild,
but the source is still the one I'm also using on my package builder.

Also, the packages became a bit stale version wise (after all, they are 9 month
old by now) and some included patches have already been applied upstream. I
haven't tried updating (and testing any updates) yet, though, and probably won't
come to that shortly either.

Anyway, this said, it should still be a pretty solid base to build on.
