@franco999 the Geany team are not experts in packaging, especially the arcane
rules each distro has and so will not make packages. The only package Geany
makes is the Windows one since Windows does not have packagers. Even the OSX
release is the work of a single packager. Instead we rely on the expertise of
specialist packaging contributors for each distro. But, being individuals they
sometimes have periods of limited time so some distros/PPAs are slower to
update than others.
Flatpacks sound nice in theory, but when someone tried to make a Geany one they
found it wasn't as simple as the website would lead you to believe. So until
somebody contributes the infrastructure to create any of the "portable" package
formats they won't happen either.
And until one of the competing formats wins and the software is installed on
all distros by default they have the problem for us of multiple targets and for
users of needing to install some supporting software to install Geany.
