I’m launching a new repository in the Peercoin github organization, called “packaging”. It’s part of the efforts to sync up with modern Bitcoin codebase and cleanup the core repository.
This repository will host build scripts and other utilities required to package the Peercoin client for various platforms. This means that contrib/debian from the core is being moved over here.

I’ve inited the repository with packaging for the ArchLinux, I’m working on Debian now. In the future there will be rpm, snap and hopefully Flatpak and Snap.
