Flatpak (previously known as xdg-app) is a bundle system, based on ostree, to easily make available applications bundle to users. Currently, flatpack is available on openSUSE Tumbleweed but we don't ship any runtime based on openSUSE (freedesktop or GNOME runtime).

Also, it could be interesting to generate flatpak bundle directly from OBS, if possible, using either available packages or directly application sourcecode.

Investigation on ostree (which is used as a basis for flatpak) and how it could work with JeOS image are also on the agenda.

Looking for mad skills in:

flatpak ostree gnome

      Current status:

      • flatpak and ostree packages were updated and fixed, for GNOME:Next / GNOME:Factory and are building also for openSUSE Leap 42.1.
      • we are still waiting for secteam review on flatpak package
      • while building flatpak on Leap, I found a bug in automake package on Leap and SLE12. Fix was backported and is pushed in SLE12 maintenance update and will be therefore available for Leap 42.x

      Next steps:

      • building a Flatpak runtime based on openSUSE Leap 42.1, using kiwi and ostree
      • discovered some unwelcomed hard dependencies in our Leap / TW packages, send some fixes to TW.
