i usully build natron myself, since we have to subcribe to get binary access.
following the instructions for installing Natron from source at GitHub is a little bit fiddly and time consuming, but it sort of works.
this time i wanted to create a little script to automatize the process – not only, to make it more comfortable, but also to produce binaries, which should look and behave like the official binaries as close as possible in a reproducible way. i was studding the the qmake project files and and the travis instructions in the tools folder of the source tree, but i couldn’t figure out, how the offical binaries are finally made?
are there some hidden additional scripts involved, that are not included in the open source distribution, or is just a lack of knowledge or stupidity on my side, that i couldn’t guess a straight forward solution to reproduce this task?
could you please share a few hints, how to handle this process in a similar way as on your side, to produce debian packages, which do not differ from the official ones in any significant aspect.
