That would be news to me. Any references?

Swfdec is pretty dead (as per a chat with its maintainer a few months
ago), however it is still shipped with GNOME.

The rules that we have had in GNOME so far for module inclusion
proposals are listed in the wiki[1].
GNOME has had its "module proposal period" at the beginning of each
6-months release cycle which is defined in the release schedule (the
2.33/3.0 schedule is not yet available but should be soon).

However there is an ongoing debate[2] whether to change the current
module proposal system.
As a side effect it would also avoid cases in which the release-team
(that currently makes the final decisions) would have to choose between
several good applications that fit very similar needs (for historical
references: Banshee and Rhythmbox, Beagle and Tracker).
Actively developed modules in the area of free Flash support that I am
currently aware of are Gnash and Lightspark.
