I am not 100% sure how this is meant to work atm. Kalev has recently been
working on the 3rd party software feature after we got the final go-ahead
from the council so he can hopefully clarify exactly how things works now.

I've noticed that
1) fedora-workstation-repositories is not installed by default on F27
2) After installing this package, there's no indication it's there in the
gnome-software UI (even after killing the process and running pkcon refresh)
My understanding is that this is supposed to enable user to install 3rd
party stuff easily, currently just PyCharm or Google Chrome, and that
gnome-software is supposed to display these (when the package is installed)
and allow the user to install them with just a click (warning them that
this is 3rd party software not supported by Fedora).
Did I understand the feature correctly?
Is the reason it's not installed by default is because the UI doesn't know
how to deal with it, or is this a bug?
