Hi, thanks for checking in. I've never tested using the dev-docker containers to build .deb within them. Long-term I would like it to build containerized apps like snap, flatpak, etc. and maybe deb's come along for free.
I vaguely remember reading "each package manager/person maintains their own blahblah to create their distro's packages" If that's true and this package metadata it isn't centrally kept by the core GnuCash team...then I suspect it's technically possible to build deb packages within the containers (since they are full OSs), but that the GnuCash team doesn't yet have it automated because they don't coordinate/have the packager(s) metadata for each distro. True, no stable release of a Docker package to run on Disco yet. As an alternative, you could run the testing release of Docker. Or...run the snap for Docker. Running the snap removes your OS version conflict + gives you the stable Docker 18.06 which is a very well tested and rich version of Docker. https://snapcraft.io/docker By that webpage, disco is the 2nd most popular OS on which it runs. --Dale On Mon, Sep 9, 2019 at 4:10 AM Stephen M.
