Would be great to get a package of the Linux version.

    I don't have an account on that site, so I don't know what's being referenced, but JBidwatcher doesn't stand alone from its UI right now, so no web-UI. While I don't have a QNAP myself (I just recently picked up a second-hand Synology) I understand the desire. There are various complications, but the two core issues are that I just don't have one, and I've not taken the time to separate JBidwatcher from its user interface.

    So..no, I'm sorry, no plans at this time.

    I don't think it's necessary to have one. They just have a custom Linux package format called QPKG. Not a dev so don't know how it works, but shouldn't be hard to alter the existing Linux version?
