I really don't know, as Matthias said this is targeted at f21 now is a
good time to look at what we do need to do.

we need to work out where the data will be put, we need to then work
out how to get the data together and how to integrate it into the
release processes. I'm wanting to make the release processes more
lightweight. for instance today it takes us pretty much a whole work
day to push updates assuming that nothing goes wrong,  which it
frequently does. I really do not have much time to spend on this likely
until Fedora 20 goes out the door.

I honestly think we are probably best off doing it in a manner like
darkserver does and not by integrating it into the release processes.
but instead pulling the builds in and extracting the metadata and
providing it via a web based appstore.
