I do maintain rpm
for OpenSUSE builds and I had in the past also maintain Fedora version. I must be honest and maintaining OpenCPN is more and more difficult as the make files for the plugins have been changed ignoring distro packager.
Personnaly, I do not like the Flatpack model as it requires a download of a large amoutn of data (what can be very expensive from a boat) and does not benefit from any maintenance
by the distro team.
I will provide a correction for the plugin
when I have some free time. To be honest a large part of them already run.
You can find my rpm
Adpating to Centos should be simple, but you msut expect some package name changes.
