flatpak-build-export - Create a repository from a build directory
build-export [OPTION...] LOCATION DIRECTORY [BRANCH]
Creates or updates a repository with an application build. LOCATION is the
location of the repository. DIRECTORY must be a finalized build directory. If
BRANCH is not specified, it is assumed to be "master".
If LOCATION exists, it is assumed to be an OSTree repository, otherwise a new
OSTree repository is created at this location. The repository can be inspected
with the ostree
The contents of DIRECTORY are committed on the branch with name
app/APPNAME/ARCH/BRANCH, where ARCH is the architecture of the runtime that
the application is using. A commit filter is used to enforce that only the
contents of the files/ and export/ subdirectories and the metadata file are
included in the commit, anything else is ignored.
The build-update-repo command should be used to update repository metadata
whenever application builds are added to a repository.
The following options are understood:
Show help options and exit.
One line subject for the commit message.

exported app instead of the default file (called metadata). This is useful if
you want to commit multiple things from a single build tree, typically used in
combination with --files and --exclude.
Use the files in the specified subdirectory as
the file contents, rather than the regular files directory.
Run appstream-builder and to update the
appstream branch after build.
Don't update the summary file after the new
commit is added. This means the repository will not be useful for serving over
http until build-repo-update has been run. This is useful is you want to do
multiple repo operations before finally updating the summary.
Sign the commit with this GPG key. This option
can be used multiple times.
GPG Homedir to use when looking for
Export a runtime instead for an app (this uses
the usr subdir as files).
