Have you looked at the wiki? https://wiki.allstarlink.org Lots of good information there.

Yes, and that is fine. It is updating any installed software to the latest version, but not
app_rpt / Asterisk / DAHDI
>Now I am wondering if that was the right thing to do.
Yes, it was! :)
>I peaked over to
>the development page and saw there were no updates to the code since
>November. And not much before that in 2018 and 2017. Should I not update
As you can see, not much has been done since 2017/2018.
There are a few folks working quietly and slowly behind the scenes.
Since app_rpt is an open source we can always use more folks to help out and contribute.
Especially if you know how! :)
>Is there any development going on?
Yes, more details to come sooner than later!
>Will it only work on the old version of Raspbian and not the newest
>versions and files?
This has been tested however we have chosen to stay with a stable LTS kernel at this time.
>Is there a wish list of things to fix/upgrade?
Yes and in progress.
>Is anyone working to make it run on a Raspberry Pi 4?
The current image should run on a Pi4.
>Am I asking the wrong questions? Nope, never. I hope this information helps.
