Be careful, enabling metadata for all copr's could yield a bad experience, 
since there is no QA (e.g. some coprs

For example, Workstation WG has tentative plans to use enabled_metadata=1 
only for a select reviewed list of coprs, that also comply with:

Any .repo files for Coprs that are installed by default in Fedora 
Workstation with enabled_metadata=1 should not point to Coprs that contain 
packages provided by Fedora, unless that repository contains only leaf 
packages.

(The mention of leaf packages was added to minimize risk of broken 
dependancies)
