Don't mark it as answered then.

And the main app is also tested.

Where is the "main app" from?

Please stop answering questions if you do not know what you are talking about.

The correct answer is:

The SETI app is pre-built for new architectures. This is more useful in Debian than it is in Ubuntu. It saves messing around with source codes.
