have you thought about using appimages or flatpack or snaps to install Maptools? It might be a simpler way to go rather than making installer versions for each OS & distro.
We are constantly evolving the release process, mostly because Java keeps changing what works and what doesn’t. Maintaining releases for 3 OSs is a constant challenge.
