I think an automated nightly / snapshot build of deb package would worth it. It would enable to quickly test bugfixes and to upgrade / revert ‘beta’ versions for “early testers” end-users using apt built-in features.
For instance, today @koan fixed a problem in a python script in rhasspyhermes but I’m not able to test it as a debian package user (it seems to me that the debian package does not give access to python source code where I could have added manually the new source code as a workaround).
Would it be possible to launch each night the “build deb package” stuff and to make the resulting package available somewhere ? (for instance using a github action building the deb package and creating an automated release tagged as ‘YYYYMMDD_snapshot’, or maybe just point out the packages as artifacts resulting from the action)
