I'm not using the freedesktop SDK and am building Python 2.7 from source so
that part isn't a problem at least...

I barely know how to handle an flatpak, trying to learn Appimage may send
me over the edge :) The only reason I'm doing this at all is I don't want
people upgrading to Fedora 32 not have access to chirp. We're actually
discussing coming out with a ham specific Fedora spin but unfortunately it
will not include chirp at this time.
