Re: KDE/Qt Flatpak SDK/Runtime


if you add your additional dependencies which are not in KDE's flatpak runtime 
currently, then I guess it won't have any difference for your users. They will 
either have to download a runtime requiring more space or an app bundle/repo 
requiring extra space due to QtLocation, QCA and so on. My personal opinion is 
that we should cover the most needed stuff for most of the KDE/Qt 
applications, while keep the extra dependencies in application manifests 
itself, avoiding to make our runtime unnecesarily huge. Anyway, it's not me 
who takes care currently of KDE/Qt flatpak runtime, so not my decision.
