Would a Debian/Ubuntu/... package be useful?

I maintain, or more accurately don’t maintain, the PsychoPy package for Arch. It looks like 2023.1.1 works with Python 3.10 and I can finally update the package. There was a time when there was a Debian package. Is this something that would be useful to create again? It would probably require creating, and hosting, a PPA. Is that something the dev team could do?

I am probably not willing to maintain/test the package for all flavors/versions of Debian/Ubuntu, so we would need to be strategic about what other packages to try and create. Note, I have never made an rpm package, but could be convinced to play around with that.

It would be great if people could just do sudo apt install psychopy or sudo snap install psychopy but I anticipate that being “non-trivial” to get working. I think a great first step is simply to have clear simple instructions to get things working on built-in python installs.

Getting things working on Py 3.10 with relatively little effort is going to be a great start and is probably a necessary precursor to making the deb/rpm packages
