bug#26455: Emacs Packaging

Request to alter the "recommended" way of installing Emacs in GNU/Linux:

Although technically not a bug, the "Download" section in the Emacs website is somewhat vague in describing how to install Emacs in GNU/Linux. Rather than the options "build from source" or "use an older version", I believe Emacs should ship packaged with a tool such as
AppImage (http://appimage.org)
Or FlatPak (http://flatpak.org).
This way installation on GNU/Linux systems would be simplified significantly and on top of that users would have easy access to the latest version rather than installing from a repository.
Stay paranoid, and happy hacking! -Muto
