Hi Moritz, (warming this post up again ...).
I see your point! And I am aware, that dependencies might be changed in development versions. QGIS has some nightly builds e.g. with ubuntugis dependencies. Maybe snap could be useful? There does not seem to be a snap for GRASS yet: https://snapcraft.io/search?q=grass If you guys think this is of interest, I could have a look at it in Bonn (and maybe join forces with QGIS project if the relevant people for the QGIS snap [1,2] are in Bonn too). I would also consider contributing to packaging, but I have no experience with that. So, maybe Martin (as we are on Ubuntu), we can have a short chat in Bonn to see if I can be of help there... Looking forward to seeing you in Bonn!
