Flatpak packaging for stable releases

Hello,

I really appreciate the work that has gone into flatpak and the excellent
support for it in KDE and the KDE infrastructure for it.

I have an hard time understanding what is the best way to distribute a stable
release through flatpak.

I am not sure if the KDE flatpak repositories are supposed to also be used for
stable releases.

I have seen a few KDE applications being also hosted on flathub. Is this the
way to go ?

Best regards

flatpak-kde-runtime is used for flathub stable releases,
flatpak-kde-applications isn't.

As for your application, I would say the quickest way to go is flathub
at this moment.

Just curious - does this mean every download from Flathub for a KDE
application hits flatpak-kde-runtime, or is that a one-off hit when
the bundle is generated and uploaded to Flathub?

Cheers,
Ben

We just don't build or serve flatpak-kde-runtime, only applications.

Runtimes and applications are separated, you download a runtime for multiple
applications. As for KDE runtime, it is build and hosted on flathub so
everyone installing a Qt/KDE app dowloads the runtime from Flathub directly,
not from our servers where we host KDE Applications.

I would strongly encourage it. Flathub is quickly becoming the de facto source for Flatpak apps, and all of GNOME’s apps are already there. It would be great to get some more KDE representation there too.
