Project Description

Currently flatpak uses appstream-glib to parse and generate appstream files however, appstream-glib is no longer maintained and this has resulted in many features not being propagated to flatpak. There is currently 2 prs porting flatpak & flatpak-builder to appstream.

Goal for this Hackweek

The goal would be to finish the last mile and ensure that the repo's produced and 1:1 or at least close enough to complete the switch.
