Packaging gnulib through a packaging system (such as Debian, pkg, BSD ports, or brew) is, in the current state of things, not desirable. Gnulib is a source code library , and, although the documentation states that the user has the choice between using the git repo and stable releases , there have not been such stable releases for 4 years. That is, everyone uses the git repo. And we are taking QA steps to ensure a high quality of the code in the git repo. Packaging gnulib through a packaging system would have the effect that its users see an older version of gnulib, without benefits - because whether someone invokes 'git clone' or 'brew', it's a network access in any case.
