You don't know who these maintainers are or what they're doing to the software (reminder that nobody audits most packages). If FOSS is all about privacy and freedom, why is the default adding a middle-man between your software provider and you. You should just have to trust who makes the software, like in Windows. Imagine if you downloaded qbittorrent on Windows but some guy does who knows what to the code and tells you it's ok to use the software after he's done with it. Let's hope flatpaks get better.
