 Keep the suggestions coming, this is super useful!

Another point to keep in mind, if you build and distribute your own .deb
or Flatpak package you keep the control on the release schedule. Using
jdeb you could publish your first package in a couple of weeks. Going
the official Debian archive route takes a lot more time and you're tied by the Debian release schedule and update policy. If the application is
mature and stable it works well, but it can become frustrating if it
evolves quickly.

I maintain gitlab using https://wiki.debian.org/FastTrack

gitlab has a long dependency tree and very fast release cycle. It gets new releases every month and security updates are given only for 3 months.

If more people find this approach useful, this could become official some day.
