Hi guys, how it’s going on?
As a simple user, in the use of Snaps, I got the habit of installing packages packaged: by reliable projects, by Snapcrafters community, and by famous developers. Smaller apps, maintained by unknown developers, are the kind of apps I tend to install only when necessary.
I wonder how can I transfer, as a user, these requirements of choice to my use of Flathub. In Snaps, if the package is maintained by a company or a reliable community, they put a green dash on it. If it’s packaged by the community of Snapcraft, they put “Snapcrafters” on it, and if it’s developed by a famous Linux community developer, I can clearly see his name.
When it comes to Flathub, I can see when the publisher is the original community, but in any other case, as a simple user, I just feel lost. I can click on “See details” to see pieces of information about the package maintenance on Github, and sometimes I realize there are Flathub guys involved there, but I don’t actually know if they are observing the commits, or “leading” the maintenance of that package or something.
While I was writing this, I realized the text sounded a little bit like a feedback, but that’s was not the original intention, the original intention was to just ask for personal help. That being said, if anyone could enlighten me, on recommend me documentation on how the whole commit/security maintenance works, I would appreciate, since this would make me feel more comfortable using Flathub.
Ty, guys! A good day for you.
