First of all: Is there a Manjaro mailinglist? This forum is technically difficult and has to much restrictions (e.g. no links allowed). In my sense the forum is inpolite because of the reputation system.
I’m a becoming(!) upstream maintainer of a Python application. I use Debian and don’t know much about other distributions. But as a upstream maintainer I have to learn some things. That is why I am asking. I don’t want to troll or start heavy and hot pro and cons discussions.
The question is why your rolling release model makes a stable distribution?
I assume it is stable. In another case you wouldn’t have so much users.
I know rolling release from Debians unstable and testing branches which are special cases and they are not stable by default and not for productive use.
What mechanisms you have to be (nearly) sure that your releases are stable? Is there a quality check or something?
Let’s take a look at “my” application “backintime”
forum doesn’t allow links! H_T_T_P_S://packages.manjaro.org/?query=backintime
I can see a GitLab repo with an installer like script.
It seems to me that you install direct from the upstream GitHub repo, right?
Which version/tag/commit do you use here? I can’t understand that in the script.
Am I right so far with my journey?
