Title: Support Update Repo Generation

Buildservice: Evaluation by engineering manager
Milestone: 2.3
Requester: Desirable
Projectmanager: Mandatory

Requested by: Adrian Schröter (adriansuse)

Partner organization:

The Build Service should offer update repos as repository channel. It
is unclear right now, how we will carry in the extra update information
texts. This should maybe designed together with a new changelog

+ Business case (Partner benefit):
+ Especially on openSUSE systems where the update applets
+ only support updating if there is a patches.
+ It's a pain because then the user will have no idea that there are
+ updates unless they launch Software Manager in YaST (not even update
+ manager!) or they run zypper.

the extra informations for update channels can be stored already in
_patchinfo files.
We lack the generation part for it so far.
