The elementary OS team is working toward integrating Flatpak support with their distribution's application centre. The developers appear to be working on adding Flatpak packages to their own application centre rather than tying their centre to existing Flatpak repositories. "Before we get too far into it, we want to make sure there's a clear distinction that we'll be moving towards Flatpak (the packaging format) and not Flathub (a single Flatpak-powered app repository). While Flathub is a great place to get popular cross-platform apps, we still want AppCenter to be the best place to get apps that are specially developed for elementary OS. Moving to Flatpak doesn't mean moving away from our focus on native apps, from enabling developers to get paid with pay-what-you-want downloads, or from the online AppCenter Dashboard where each app is carefully tested, reviewed, and curated before being published to users in AppCenter. We'll be providing our own hosted and curated Flatpak repo for AppCenter, much like we provide our own hosted and curated Debian repo today." More information on how and why Flatpak will be supoorted can be found in the project's blog post.
