Hi, I was wondering, for software that provide an appimage, is there any additional value that would justify packaging it ?
packaged software gets automatic updates, and you can find/install everything in one place instead of having to browse the internet, download, unpack, add to your menu, etc...
synth-ruiner I have only 2 appimages right now but they do self update automatically and handle the desktop files
Packaged software also can use the shared libraries already installed on the machine alongside other application, which limit their size (Since it doesn’t need to package these libs into the AppImage each time).
