Please, do you know if Gnome software update function will update all of my repos? When installing Fedora I usually just add RPMFusion, Adobe Flash (through Negativo17) and Chrome repos (both by following the default instructions). Many thanks for your help!

Excluding Nvidia, unitedrpms provides, adobe flash and more software...

that's not what I'm asking for, and I really don't want to put my system at risk with UnitedRPMs or even worse with a NVIDIA card!

Yes, I ask you, why are you using various repositories? common sense!... You ask if Gnome Software will be updating your repositories, sure, but if negativo and rpmfusion is enabled then you will make conflicts... UnitedRMs is very stronge y secure (the repository, packages and repodata was signed with gpgkey), you don't need various repositories. I'm curious, why 'unitedrpms' is risky for you?

@davidva, but will Gnome Software update the applications installed through unitedrpms? Thanks!

@davidva, what are you talking about? RPMFusion is specifically designed to not conflict with Fedora. I don't know about Negativo17 (I get flash directly from the Adobe repo), but if he's only getting flash from there, it won't conflict either.
