I guess I missed a lot of the conversation when I replied earlier.

I was not aware of the process. I really though you were working of
Julien's Meta.

 I know a lot of people(testers) have been using Julien's Meta for a
while and therefore when something breaks or is out of place it is
fixed very rapidly . Actually breakage are becoming very uncommon at
this point.  So if anything this meta has been "maturing" and is
pretty stable.But I get your point it is a Daily build. That was the
reason why I used your meta for the upgrade of a VM and the fresh
install of a PC.

However when you said that you create this meta from stable package ,
I guess the package are stable.But the meta is not... Resulting in
some modifications in the wiki page for example and me posting this
thread because the use of this meta (for a new install and upgrade)
resulted in both cases in an inferior result as if I used the Daily

I guess my point is , both seems to be as " *not* wise at all to
recommend it in *any* *way* to people wanting to try out LXQt. "
I guess it gives some sort of choice. And people can *risk* either of
the two PPA I guess...

As for me, objectively, and in *my* case the Meta you made was not
satisfactory for both new install and upgrade. The daily actually end
up fixing most of the issues on the upgraded system. But I had to
reinstall entirely the system that had a fresh install.
