I’m trying to install the graph-tool package on Ubuntu in an automated process. In this situation, it is not feasible for me to configure the separate upstream repository, I need to use the standard Ubuntu package repository.
The installation instructions mentions that this might be possible:
apt-get install python3-graph-tool
However, this doesn’t work for me, because I am using Ubuntu
jammy, which is the current latest LTS release. When I check the Ubuntu package registry, I can see why it doesn’t work: the package is being distributed only to lunar, mantic, and noble. None of these is an LTS release. As a test, I spun up one of these images and I could see that I could run the installation without issues and without adding any additional upstream repository.
My question is: would you consider changing the distribution of the Ubuntu package to register it at least into one of the LTS releases? I.e. at least into Jammy at this point in time? That would make it more convenient for users to be able to perform installation without having to add an upstream repository.
