I think this already happened. Applications like GNOME Recipes are
only available via Flatpaks. The Workstation WG did not package it for
Fedora 26. I don't know if other GNOME applications are in a similar state. :(
It's not shipped as Flatpak by Fedora. Nobody's stopping you from submitting
a package of Recipes for review. Or are you demanding that the Workstation
WG maintain an RPM package of Recipes?
