The overall goal in this aspect would be to make MyPaint readily accessible to everyone that would like to try/use it. Ideally this is solved by having packages in official repos for GNU/Linux, installers for Windows and whatever the best option is for distribution on OSX.
If a distro has an Official package, that means you can install it from your package manager. Those packages might be of an older version of MyPaint. Unoffical packages are often newer. Development packages are very recent. If you cannot find a package for your distro or the version you want, you can always get the source and compile from the official Download page
