Why the LineageOS 16 MindTheGapps is not part of LineageOS 16 ROM??
Android being an Open Source Project is free to use but the underlying Application are not. Because of the Open Source nature of Android many developers started developing their version of Androids for example: CyanogenMod (LineageOS) which has their own set of features on top of Stock Android Source code.
Android is owned and developed by Google and hence it delivers all the google made Applications such as: Gmail, YouTube, Google Maps and many other applications with almost all Android devices.
It was back in 2009 during the development of CyanogenMod 4.1 Google sent a letter to Steve Kondik (Co-founder of CyanogenMod) to remove all the Google Applications from CyanogenMod ROM. After this conflict, any Android ROM be it the stock AOSP code, LineageOS or any other ROM does not include any proprietary application.
Why to flash LineageOS 16 MindTheGapps??
Because Google’s applications are not free and are not allowed to be in a custom ROM like LineageOS (LineageOS 16 in this case), they are being extracted from some OEM’s devices such as Google Pixel devices and are made available as a recovery flashable zip file.
