That was actually one of the two reasons I started this thread.

For instance, is this the package that must be rebuilt in order to see
an AppStream metadata file appear/refreshed in GNOME Software?
Could we get an explainer (for dummies) of how the entire pipeline works?

The other reason was someone from Debian telling one of my upstreams
"Don't use appstream-util to validate the file, it's deprecated, use
appstreamcli". Frankly, that struck a chord, considering x years ago I
had spent a considerable amount of time convincing dozens of projects
to adopt "AppData" (at the time), filing tickets and submitting PRs.
