The PPA is separately maintained, I was hoping it gets updated
soon. If not we may need to drop the reference from the homepage.

That's odd. I don't know what that means. The normal process
for AppImages is 1) download 2) make executable 3) run.

This line needs to go into into the file /etc/apt/sources.list
or alternatively create a new file, e.g. openscad-nightly.list,
in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ with just that line.
After that it should be picked up by the distro software tools,
so apt-get update && apt-get install openscad-nightly should
Ubuntu should also be able to install the Snap package, but I
would not really recommend using that as this makes it run in
a container which means working with files is a bit annoying.
