[nmglug] next generation package repo management anyone? (nix, flatpak, snap)

I've used only snap to setup my work computer. It is running kubuntu 
18.04. Also I have a spare husk that is running Arch, and I only used 
snap to install all the GUI apps. It too works well.

I used flatpak for GIMP, and it worked well under Ubuntu 18.04. Though, 
I wish the GUI front end was written for both KDE and GNOME. As far as I 
know, this hasn't changed.

I would like flatpak to be the dominate universal package manager. But I 
believe at this point snap has the larger store.
