Hi Baptiste,

Many thanks for your message - I will add a distribution mapping for
Alpine Linux once Wireguard has moved out of testing.

In Alpine we monitor releases directly with - when a
new notification with an Alpine mapping is received, it creates a flag
in the Aports application. The package maintainer then receives an email
about the outdated package from Aports, in the same way as when someone
manually flags the pkg as outdated on

Kind Regards,
