[OSM-dev] osm2pgsql development PPA

I've set up a Ubuntu PPA for osm2pgsql development builds at 

These are builds of the latest development version from git and will be 
updated daily, or when there are source code updates, whichever is less 
frequent. Although we're pretty careful about what we merge in to 
master, it is more likely to break than the releases. They are 
definitely more stable than releases before 0.84.0, which have known 
bugs, and probably more stable than 0.86.0 and 0.87.x.

I intend to package osm2pgsql releases, but need to set up scripts for 
that. I don't have an ETA, as it's all unpaid volunteer work.

There are packages for trusty (14.04 LTS) and vivid (15.04) but not 
precise (12.04 LTS). This is because osm2pgsql requires a compiler which 
supports C++11, and I'd have to investigate how to do that on Launchpad.
