Does the generic packages repository support apt packages?

Hi GitLab Community,

I’m currently on the works of maintaining Termux packages for legacy environments (below Android 7) and maybe using the Generic Packages Repo to publish apt packages for legacy Termux environments. Can I use it to publish rpm/deb files? Thanks in advance.

According to the docs it looks like Generic packages or Debian might be your closest bet.

Nice! But, does Generic Packages Registry support rolling releases as per my use case (only push latest builds to registry)?

I haven’t used the package registry, but AIUI this works like the container registry, where you build and push your containers in the CI pipelines. So, you have complete control over which branches / tags / etc. you push and when.

There are some docs here but the CI reference may be more useful to you.
