AppStream/DEP-11 for the Debian Archive

Description of the project: The ultimate goal of this project is to implement AppStream for Debian, allowing applications like GNOME-Software to be run on Debian. Also, this task will make it possible to query installation of things where you don't know the exact package name, so you can make calls like "install missing codec for X" or "install firmware for hardware Y". It will also be one more step on the way to improved cross-distribution collaboration and will make some other cool technology possible in future.
