Follow-up Comment #1, patch #9440 (project octave):

I support this in general, and I would like to try this out and learn more
about building a Flatpak application.

I have some initial questions and comments on inspection, without trying

* Does the directory have to be called "flatpak"?
* Why do you have to remove "<project_group>GNU</project_group>"? I know this
has come up before but I still don't understand it.
* Can't EPSTOOL_BASE be passed on the make command line instead of patching?
* Isn't there a way to call qmake or make on qscintilla to avoid patching?
* Why does the huge block of pcre tests have to be removed from configure? If
the tests are failing can we fix that a different way?
* Should we name our desktop and appdata files to be "org.octave.Octave"
instead of "www.octave.org-octave"?
* I think the name of the application should be "org.octave.Octave"
* I don't think the LIBGL_ALWAYS_SOFTWARE=1 environment variable is
appropriate to set unconditionally. Some users might need it depending on
their graphics hardware but it should not be necessary for everyone.
* OpenBLAS should be built with DYNAMIC_ARCH=1, not TARGET=PRESCOTT
* Why are you downloading epstool from fedoraproject.org?
* Do you have an example build log that you can share with us to show what the
configure results look like?
