I am planning to have multiple servers running with the same packages. And as a solution to not compile packages individually on each server, I want to use checkinstall to generate .deb and then distribute it via private repository.
However, in the linked guide it says that it is
not designed to produce packages suitable for distribution
My questions are:
What is different about this packaging, that makes it not suitable for distribution? Or what should be in the package, to make it suitable?
Could there be any issues with using checkinstall and distributing packages to ~20 servers?
Any advice or links where I can find out more appreciated. Thanks!
