  • dnf5

    Next-generation RPM package management system

    currently, no, but dnf5 looks really promising (video example) and is slated to be shipped in about a year

  • snapcraft.io

    Discontinued The official website's repository for the Snap store [Moved to: https://github.com/canonical/snapcraft.io] (by canonical-web-and-design)

    Technically, they're not really "proprietary" (even the snapcraft.io "store" / backend has gplv3 code on github) ... they're still shit, but not proprietary. It think "walled garden" or "locked down" would be more appropriate phrasing.

  • unsnap

    Quickly migrate from using snap packages to flatpaks

    Snaps are so bad that one of Canonical's star employees left and tweeted about snap issues saying that "They get ignored or dismissed. The CTO flat doesn't believe there's a problem. The team is understanffed and there is no motivation from IoT and enterprise focused people to fix desktop problems. Been trying from the inside for years. I gave up hope and left.". Same guy later went on to create the unsnap repo on github which helps users find replacements for their snap packages among flatpaks etc - and this wasn't a "jaded employee" thing so much as him trying to look out for users' best interests. Good on him.

  • fedy

    Fedy makes it easy to install third-party software in Fedora.

    Despite rumors that RpmFusion won't do it (which are untrue and based on ONE maintainer saying he personally was not interested), efforts are alive and well to bring the support to RpmFusion - see github and bugzilla for rpmfusion - so I would suggest just being patient and giving them the time they need.

  • bookworm

    The Universally Accessible document Reader (by blindpandas)

    "SO an avid bookworm could read a book about worms with bookworm on Debian bookworm"
