  • The promise: A universal package means that ISVs don't need be aware of every distro and its unique quirks.
  • The reality: They don't need to and never have. Put out the sources with a makefile. The maintainers can handle the rest. It's what we do. Heck, the makefile is optional. We can write one. (But please merge it when we send a pull request!)
