Adding metainfo file in usable fedora font packages

On Fedora devel list, Richard Hughes asked for adding metainfo files in fonts packages. I have started that work today. Maybe some other font packagers can also join this and fix their font packages. He has explained more about this work in his blog post. This is needed for gnome-software package. The gnome-software package is currently showing fonts and applications metadata from the appstream-data package. This package contains all the icon files as well as metainfo xml files. So, currently gnome-software can show only these packages information.

Let’s start the work to get more packages information easily available for end users in gnome-software.
