How RPMs are converted to Flatpak applications

Article Summary:

This article will aim to explain the procedure of converting RPMs to Flatpak applications

Article Description:

Fedora Flatpaks is a remote that reuses RPMs to make these RPMs work in a Flatpak environment. Since the Fedora Project includes some tools to convert RPMs to Flatpak-compatible formats, AKA manifests, it is entirely possible to turn an RPM application, like Firefox, into a Flatpak application.

This is supposed to be part 3 of the Fedora Flatpaks series.
