Hi,

It's possible, to avast! developers, to make a Debian APT repository to download avast! Linux Edition?

Thanks

Yes, it is basically possible, but the demand for such option is quite low (~ you re the first one who's asking for it :) and only apt-compatible distros would profit here - so it isn't considered a priority task for now.. anyway, the *.debs are available so that there's no obstacle for anyone to make it, if requested.

Sure, I think one day Avast Linux developer team make one repository, coz every linux user can update their avast workstation automaticaly. If possible for red hat base, debian base etc. Thank you.

Making this repo will be one feature that avast! team will offer to it users, and this will not add much work for its developers...

Add me to the list of interested people.

The competitor (BitDefender) has already a DEB repository.

Or even better, you could partner up with Ubuntu (most popular distro) so Ubuntu users can download and update Avast right with synaptic from official source.

one ubuntu-repository is internally available for testing, additional details on Monday (release-candidate build will be made).
