A distribution approach to building Flatpaks

"Flatpaks are a new way of distributing applications with bundled
dependencies so that a single binary can run across multiple versions
of a distribution and even on different distributions. While Flatpaks
are often built directly from source, building them from distribution
packages allows leveraging the distribution's existing package set and
security update process.

This talk will discuss how and why Fedora is extending its build
system to generate Flatpaks and Flatpak runtimes, how this relates to
building server-side containers and to modularity, and demonstrate the
packager-side view of the process. Attendees will learn how Flatpak
relates to the traditional distribution packaging mechanisms, and will
hopefully be inspired to help convert Fedora applications to Flatpaks."
