Snap or Flatpack?

it seems that every distribution is far behind your actual release, which contains the storj.io-prot.
Can you please consider to create a snap or flatpack?
that would give the biggest part of linux-community (OSX as well?) instant access to your releases and they would work, independent from the distro(-flaws). … …
IMHO, I would prefer a snap over flatpack, because they have a centralized store and I can search and install from *all* available snaps with one cmd from the cli: "snap find filezilla && snap install filezilla", then i can just run filezilla by it's name, without any complicated run cmds.
In opposite, flatpacks are cluttered over the whole internet, and hard to find, need extra cmd-syntax to start, etc. by far not so convenient, but hey, I would not complain ;), but may be others, not so CLI-proofed users.
autoupdate only if I add every special repository (if there is one), ending up in the need to maintain a repository-list on all machines…
Just another sysops nightmare.
Thanks for considering

No, both are flawed concepts to begin with. You can just compile from source.
That's a good joke.
