I guess that by "we", Matthias means people who are interested in
gnome-software. Right now I think this includes (at least) Richard,
Matthias, and I.
We have some scripts that extract the relevant metadata from packages.
We want the metadata to live with the rest of the repository metadata.
gnome-software or packagekit or any other relevant component would download
it and cache it locally.
