My thoughts
Me on launchpad PPA
Evidently one of my mini-apps was useful enough to make it on to Webupd8
Do you use/like that app? Maybe you want to help fund a cryptogram game

Then it comes down to easy versus correct.

That too would be a solution.

Why would you want the OSX version on linux and not the GNU version on OSX?

comment Fetching all Git repositories in the background
Given that git is for multi-user collaboration and it was written by Linus... I can't imagine there isn't a git-lock somewhere. It would require testing to find out though.

comment Create a deb package from difference between two images
It seems like a proper solution would be based off of dpkg --get-selections and modifying state based on diffing file state for anything generated in ~/.app or /etc/ ... I don't think there's a real solution though. People are trying to tackle it the other way with service orchestration tools like chef or juju.

comment dark image in Skype but without a problem in other apps
My guess is skype tries to initialize the device to zero, where guvc hits the proper ioctls to set the contrast/brightness etc to sane 50% defaults. This can be set at the device level with v4l2, but I'm not sure if you can do it from the command-line while skype is holding on to the device.

comment How can I force a script to use more resources?
valid point. changing niceness would be my first step though in case some other task is using resources. then it's moving the bottleneck around.

The private address would still be given by the second script, it's just the outbound private address.
