Cinelerra builds are currently being done with "xen" and is automatic
enough now that GG would not like to start something new BUT is not opposed
to another builder or developer who would like to implement this.  It would
be another good means of disbursement.  Below is something else another
developer could help with.

Previously another viable suggestion from Glen (email Aug. 27, 2018) is as

*Not sure if this has been posted or not previously but this looks pretty
interesting and several other Linux NLE's (Kdenlive, Openshot, Flowblade,
Pitivi, Shotcut) are now being distributed this way. It would appear
instead of packaging TARs, RPMs, DEBs and other individual distribution
formats a single self-contained 'flatpak' could be created of Cinelerra to
be installed across all Distros.. Since Cinelerra already has static builds
I would guess much of the foundation for a self-contained format like
flatpak would already be laid..?*
