I'd like to see a concrete plan for generating that metadata, and sign
off from the folks who know our current metadata generation process. 
That would be: rel-eng folks, bodhi maintainers, yum and rpm

Once everyone has reached a consensus on the plan, we would need folks
willing to work on/maintain the needed changes. 

Last time this came up, there was no good census on the metadata needed
or how to generate it, IIRC. (Happy to be proven wrong)
