The place to discuss this with developers is pspp-dev.
The PSPP devs can speak for themselves, but I think that they would/will say that packaging PSPP is now what they do. So, if you or someone else wanted to package PSPP using flagpak, I think they would welcome that and support it by answering questions. But the only official release PSPP makes is to drop a source tarball onto the GNU FTP server.
Regarding flatpak, I'm not familiar with it, but it looks like a
container system. Is that right? What specific problem would
flatpak solve that is plaguing PSPP?
