Has there been any interest in packaging Bloom in Flatpak? (Google it, I’m a “new” user and am prevented from placing a link.) This would enable it’s use on a variety of new hardware which is making strides in the developing world. I realize that this is one of many container schemes, but it seems to be one which is well supported.
This request came from the interest of supporting a Mexican organization which has placed 250 Endless OS devices in indigenous language communities here in Oaxaca. Bloom is an ideal tool for Endless which markets itself as a computing tool for the developing world. These are small computers which run EndlessOS, a locked down version of Debian or Ubuntu or something. The only way to put software on them is to have it packaged in Flatpak which is a sandboxed container.
In addition to Endless devices, ChromeOS and thus Chromebooks would be supported. Not to mention users of other Linux variants. Chromebooks are very attractive in that they tend to be inexpensive low power devices, many with no moving parts which lend them selves to life outside an airconditioned office.
What would be necessary for this to happen?
