That's great!

What are your views on what we should or shouldn't do with this in the
future? Ideally we'd maintain it upstream, because as a user I'd prefer
to trust the upstream rather than some third party when installing
flatpaks (and if the upstream maintains the flatpak, it will probably
be always up to date). It would just mean some extra work for us when
doing releases.

At least the appdata.xml file looks like something that we should
maintain ourselves.

We should probably advertise this on the pavucontrol home page.
