Reminds me: gFTP has disappeared on 15.0 :-(

gFTP did it a lot better... gFTP, a small tools, doing a single job and doing it right...
flipper, on the otherhand, has been a ham-fisted ego trip for the maintainer and a pipe-dream that it could provide the functionality of konqueror ever since d3lphin/dolphin hit the repos in 2006/7. It has always been, and continues to, be a dumbed-down version of what konqueror was (and still is in kde3).
There is no reason gFTP shouldn't be packaged. It is a small, clean and well written graphical ftp/sftp (ftp over ssh) package that handles public key/private key authentication. Why would it not be packaged for 15? It's not a space issue, it's tiny. It's in Main on 42.3 -- who made the decision to drop this package from 15? That was a bad call, see:
geehsz, if you are not going to bother to look for it, why gripe about other people's decisions. gftp IS available: https://software.opensuse.org//download.html?project=GNOME%3AApps&packag... https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/GNOME:/Apps/openSUSE_Leap_15.0/x8...
so really it was a bad call to call it a bad call!
Doesn't count: it is "experimental" repo.
