It would appear the next version of Fedora, Fedora 31, will be disabling optional Snap portable package support from GNOME Software. The move follows reports that Ubuntu will be making its own graphical Snap store application and will no longer rely on GNOME Software to display and distribute Snap packages. "In Fedora 31 I'll be disabling the snap plugin from GNOME Software. It's never been enabled in RHEL and so this change only affects Fedora. It's also not installed by default and so this change should only affect a few people. It's also not really a FutureFeature, it's a RemovalOfFeature but I'm happy to write something for the process and release notes if required. Recently Canonical decided that they are not going to be installing gnome-software in the next LTS, preferring instead to ship a "Snap Store by Canonical" rather than GNOME Software. The new Snap store will obviously not support Flatpaks (or packages, or even firmware updates for that matter)." A more detailed overview on the proposed change is presented in Richard Hughes' mailing list post.
