just to be clear that i am not trying to discourage your efforts - you
saw a problem and you solved it; not only for yourself but in a way
that could benefit others also - that is a very good thing - quite
awesome in fact - i only meant to point out that flatpacks are not the
ideal solutions to such problems

if the problem you wanted to solve is "the gst-browser does not work in
fedora"; then the better solution would be to contact the fedora
packager and ask why it is broken and how could you help to fix the
fedora package - they may have said its a known problem upstream and we
can not fix it here - then the next thing to do would be to contact the
GNU smalltalk developers and see what could be done to fix the problem

to bypass the upstreams and instead package it for flatpack is not as
helpful as it may seem - for one thing, most fedora users will not know
that your package exists and if they did, they should not want to use
it for the reasons i mentioned in the previous message - if the version
that their distro packages is broken, i think they are more likely to
lose interest in the program entirely,, rather than to seek
an alternative distribution channel
