Sorry for the late reply. I just want to put forward the idea of using
openSUSE build service. I have not tried it myself, so I cannot offer any
experience. This it what they say about the service:

The openSUSE Build Service is the only service that allows developers to
package software for all major Linux
The service provides software developers with a convenient and easy to use
tool to create and release open source software for openSUSE and other Linux
different hardware architectures and for a broad user audience.
