gnome-software is just a user application to update your system. It's being designed with a pluggable interface so it works equally well on, say, a 100% rpm-based system like Fedora or a yet-to-be-released system using ostree + application bundles. Or even Fedora with both rpms and application bundles.

The idea is that the UI of this new application will present the system to the user as OS + apps, regardless of how that's actually implemented. Whatever plugins are enabled are responsible for how things work but that detail isn't exposed to the user.
