Unfortunately, it looks like most effort is going into replacing RPM with Flatpak and APT with Snapcraft.
(Flatpak's "decentralised" argument seems a bit moot given everyone's standardizing on Flathub!)
@datenteiler @aral Package managers and the management of them by the distributions are part of the problem. Old software. By distributions patched software. Developer of the software have no control about it. A Developer must create binaries for a wide range of distributions.
Linus talked about it in the past .
Because of that we need solutions like Flatpak or better stable API/ABI over all distributions.
