Ticket #5721 (new task)
Need application icons and application descriptions

For the application installer preview I need the application icons and localized description data. I had the fedora-app-data package NAKd, but something needs to provide this data. Spot seemed to think it would be okay to include as metadata.
The idea is to:
- Generate the appstream.xml and appstream.tar files on koji
- xmlmerge the .xml files and cat the .tar files when mash'ing the compose together.
I've got C code to do the former, although someone familiar with python probably wants to re-write the code before putting it into koji. For F20 we can probably just ship the 15 most popular application icons and descriptions in gnome-software, although this won't scale with all the apps in Fedora.
Any questions, I'm hughsie on IRC. Thanks.
