V2: Packaging for Debian/Ubuntu

As v2 is getting closer to release, I’m wondering if there are any plans for packaging v2 for Debian/Ubuntu. Distributing the packages via something like a repo would lower the bar tremendously for new users and would make updating easier and more streamlined (as opposed to downloading the binary every time). I have read the big thread about packaging on this forum, but there hasn’t been activity for more than a year.

There’s been discussion here https://github.com/caddyserver/caddy/issues/2789

Most of the packaging/dist code and configs are here: https://github.com/caddyserver/dist

I think @Mohammed90 is working on something right now, still a working in progress.

The hope is to make it available before stable, but packaging is tricky.
