--- Comment #1 from Dominique Leuenberger <dimstar@xxxxxxxxxxxx> ---
/usr/share/metadata is the 'more modern' location of appdata.xml (and
metadata.xml) files according to the spec

both folders are to be treated equally, while applications are supposed to
migrate their files to /usr/share/metainfo

The dependency generator is part of the rpm package itself.

This will likelay also require a change in libzypp itself to handle files found
in /usr/share/metainfo - as it uses the appdata.xml files to identify installed
