Make a PPA 3 Years, 1 Month ago  
Hi Rainy:

I was guessing that for the ubuntu/debian version the updates could be done with the rest of the system.

This could be done like Google Chrome that the .deb installs a PPA and after that is currently updated by it.

Rainlendar could work that way, it would be absolutly awesome

What do you think?

Are PPAs available for commercial applications too? I did a quick search and it seems that PPAs in LaunchPad are only for open source projects...

Seems that you're right... the PPA setted by Google Chrome is this one:
dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/

Maybe you could do something similar for Rainlendar? The actual actualization system is "right"... it remembers me the way Google Chrome actualize itself in Windows.

Additionally, making the actualizations this way would be consistent with the OS and it would be a cool enhancement

Ubuntu supports closed source-payed applications, so maybe Rainlendar could be included in Software Center? It could be a good idea to spread Rainlendar
I think that in order to do that, the "PPA" should be created (or something that works like one)

What do you think Rainy?

Someone from Canonical send me email about this too but I haven't had time to check it yet. I probably could make at least the Rainlendar Lite available from there but I'll have to check if it's possible for the Pro too (the current license system i'm using might not be compatible).

Still nothing about this yet? You could be selling Rainlendar through the Software Center though !
