    They need to make the update of repositories smaller. 25 to 35MB of download just to make sure you have the latest lost of packages is kinda ridiculous.

          This is an excellent idea.

            Is there a plan to merge the distrib packages with the Flatpak packages? Right now I have to run two commands in the command line to upgrade my system. I made a script for that, but I still think it would be nice (and more consistent with GNOME Software, which can update both transparently)

              Why you didn't use gnome software to upgrade your system ? It's the official way

                I use both, depending on my mood. But that's not the point. The point is that it would be nice if dnf was the CLI-equivalent of Software (or vice-versa), but right now Software does something that dnf can't do: Flatpak management.

                  I don't think it would be overly difficult to make a DNF plugin that integrates with libflatpak...
