Probably not for the most popular platforms (Windows, OSX,
Ubuntu/Debian). I hope that one day we will have enough donations to pay
for the release and packaging work. Or maybe a commercial QGIS support
company will have enough contract work that allows it to subsidize work
and be responsible for the packaging of at least one of the major
platforms. This way the packaging work could be better distributed.
