Hi Christian, * c.bu...@posteo.jp <c.bu...@posteo.jp> [2023-07-28 12:14]:
Or any other idea on your site?
I had a look at the backintime sources, and I noticed that you have implemented a very unusual (for Python, at least) build system. There are well-known tools and standard practices in the Python ecosystem for packaging , and much of the Python packaging in Debian is designed to work well with them.
There are also tools for test isolation such as . Instead of increasing your workload by maintaining an extra set of tests for Debian, why not let backintime take advantage of established practices and tools? Not only will this reduce friction with the Debian packaging, it will generally make your package more accessible to other Python developers, which in turn may attract more people to help fix bugs and keep the software in good shape.
