FS#1403 - [flatpak] Access to proprietary applications


Additional info:
* 0.9.10-2.hyperbola2

Steps to reproduce: Flatpak gives access to interesting features for the deployment of applications, but in fact it also gives access to proprietary applications like Skype (, Steam ( and many more. So it should be checked if this should be part of the repositories within an open, libre distribution. In my point of view this violates the freedom of users, because there can be not tolerance about intolerance even regarding this.

You have a strong point in this regard. Although, you can install free software with it too...

But yeah, it might be wise to do what you suggested.

We can always ask Emulatorman what he thinks.

I no longer care if you get rid of it, but I do have to say, in its current state you can't install much anyhow. Libre or otherwise...


Emulatorman will remove it no doubt. :o
