Not sure as i haven't yet read the other threads about current state of FreeCAD 0.19 AppImage. At some point yes, it makes sense for this to happen. When i guess there will be general consensus we have successfully migrated from PPA to Conda being the preferred and default source for creating AppImage. All mayor issues resolved (compared to the previous PPA option offering). At that point i guess this thread will surpass its initial goal, and the bare length of the thread has become an issue. In addition i feel that somebody like @looo should open such new thread. As for locking forum threads. I don't have strong opinion on that.
