The ximion repo is where the original development happens.

The package I used is appstream-glib from archlinux.org which seems to 
originate here

If I look inside a package - eg gnome-photos-{someversion}.pkg.tar.xz

Under /usr/share/appdata I find a org.gnome.Photos.appdata.xml
Under /usr/share/applications I find a org.gnome.Phots.desktop


The appstream-builder reads the packages and extract the info from
the xml and desktop file. I also extracts icons from the apps icon

So for an app to be correctly registered as available

This info is used to generate the sample files I generated for the
unstable repo. You can find them at this location

The appstream-builder which is in manjaro-community repo seems to have
interface for alpm or asb

The script I used on the unstable repo is available on this location
