Note that "AppStream" is not the name of a piece of software, but the codename 
for a project that relies on various components (packagekit, OCS, applications 
metadata...). We *may* use the Ubuntu Software Center (which should be using 
packagekit as a back-end instead of apt soon, hopefully), but we could also 
choose to develop our own Software Center or improve existing tools (though it 
would probably require a lot of work).

For mageia-app-db, we can use help on various subjects (internationalization 
of the application from a technical point of view, security audit, UI 
design...). However I don't want to "steal" work forces from the rest of the 
Mageia project. There's no urgence right now on mageia-app-db side, I think. 
However, any help is welcome !
