It is the metadata for every device -- every fwupd client deliberately
gets the entire catalog rather than making a bespoke request like
Windows update. This ensures that the LVFS doesn't know what hardware
you have on your computer, and couldn't provide that kind of data even
if compelled to by law enforcement. The entire architecture is privacy
centric, and also allows it to scale to millions of devices without
having thousands of servers.
