Consider taking over maintenance of Flatpak repository

Post by joshas »

Currently XnViewMP flatpak repository (https://github.com/flathub/com.xnview.XnViewMP) is maintained by volunteers, users of your software. Flatpak/Flathub insists that ownership should be held by program author. That would reduce delays after new release. I understand that maintaining one more package format might be problematic, but currently flatpak updates do not require too much work, just three changes: package URL, checksum and link to new release notes. Test packages are built automatically by Flathub Bot on remote server and can be installed locally with single command.
