I am not saying you would need this tool. Because it targets more than
just Ubuntu, it may be better investment, maybe even better than using
Snaps. I did not test anything like that with Kexi though.

You can also:
- build Kexi by hand on your computer
- build Kexi and package it (and share with others?)
- use the https://build.opensuse.org/ service to do the same
- ask someone else to make a package

Finding people that _regularly_ help with packaging Kexi will help the project.

Things will improve, just now the focus is on development of the new
shiny Kexi 3.
