The drawback of a static db approach is that the more interactive features like
rating, comments, suggest application to friends, social features and other
advanced features do not work.

This was the approach we had with the old GHNS where we used static xml files
for the package data. Now KDE switched to OCS as real REST based client/server
protocol where more interactive features are possible.

I think OCS is the more powerful approach.

Sure, for the appstore I think something like GHNS is the way to go. However we use PackageKit for the updates (as an applet), and it would be good to have it integrated as well, so that if an update comes, and there is appdata for it, you see the update as one app.

What do you think?
