Hi, W.P,
As always good to know you are still "lurking" out there!

We absolutely wish to also make a FlatPak version and that is why the
subdirectory was named "images" so that it would be meaningful to have both
the AppImage and FlatPak there. BUT, what we need is someone versatile in
setting up an initial FlatPak for Cinelerra-GG to help get that going --
once set up, I should be able to use it as needed. We were indeed lucky for
MatN to put in the time to get AppImage going. Hoping for someone to
provide the same for FlatPak -- it just seems from what I have read to be
less obvious.
