Re: [opensuse-buildservice] AppStream AppData

A good starting point would be to look at (and improve) brp-extract-appdata
package in openSUSE (which is used to do some extracting).

in openSUSE 13.1 we provide a gnome-software-appdata which collects all
*.appdata from all packages (there is also an appdata.xml.gz published, but
not used by zypper).

(It unfortunatelly collects from the wrong directory, so the data
is not useful at all...)

So in short:
OBS does the right things on openSUSE for example.. what we're missing is
that zypper copies the appdata.xml.gz (and related icons!) to the right
cache location (a zypp plugin is missing for that).

Btw: Factory's libzypp already parses the appdata.xml.gz file.
Dunno if 'zypper se -t application' already works, though.
