There's no PPA or repository for SOFA

Bug Description

There's no PPA or repository for SOFA - as you're using Launchpad, it provides PPA's, allowing Ubuntu and Debian users to automatically install and be kept up to date with the latest version of SOFA; it would be great if SOFA had a PPA!

Thanks,
Dunc

Hi Duncan,

You are right - I should add a PPA at some point. My only excuse at the moment is that I am relying on SourceForge download numbers to promote the project and I am not in a hurry to divert downloads anywhere else. If I can eventually get SOFA Statistics into the standard Ubuntu repository then the kudos of that may compensate for the loss of download numbers. Or is it possible to still collect download numbers for PPAs etc?

All the best, Grant

It will be possible to get download numbers from PPA's soon, apparently:

Hi Duncan,

I have just subscribed to that bug. When an easy solution finally comes through I will have another look at making a PPA.

All the best, Grant

It seems that there are no longer any technical obstacles but I will need to set aside some time to make this happen. SOFA is stabilising a bit at the moment so it could be possible in a couple of months.

May I draw attention to this again? Is there any chance of a PPA?
