Packaging Repomaker as Flatpak

Summary: Repomaker is a django web application that lets people create their own f-droid repo without requiring any special knowledge. You can try it out at repomaker.grobox.de.
To let people install it on their desktops, we want to bundle repomaker with PyQt and distribute it as a flatpak.

This is where you come in. We were already able to make a running flatpak of repomaker which now only misses its quite extensive list of dependencies. We would appreciate any help with one or more of the project’s issues in order to be able to release repomaker to flathub soon.
Skills: Experience with packaging flatpaks
Required: Linux environment with flatpak-builder
