Well if upstream third party ports adopt libxo will remain to be seen.
However, one thing we can do is to make it super-duper easy for them to
Then it will be a no-brainer for them to use libxo.

I would like to see a Debian package of libxo made, so it can be
into Debian and Ubuntu derived Linux distributions.

I have done similar Debian packaging efforts for kyua, atf, and lutok:

Does anyone have connections in the Debian community to push
these kinds of reviews forward?  I've asked on the debian-bsd mailing list,
but got no help.  I basically need a "Debian Developer" who has
privileges to upload packages to the Debian distribution to take the
packages that I have made
and upload them (after making sure they pass lintian checks).

I can take a whack and do something similar for libxo.

I was actually very surprised at how hard/bureaucratic it is to get a new
into Debian.  FreeBSD ports and Mac Homebrew are actually way easier to
work with in terms
of adding a new package.  However, Debian and Ubuntu have a lot of users,
so it is worth
the effort to push this kind of stuff through.
