I'd suggest the kde-frameworks-devel at kde.org mailing list since this email 
seems to be about frameworks (or at least metainfo.yml is frameworks specefic 
i think).

Also I'd be a bit more specific, i read the email and didn't understand what 
you actualyl want to do, sure add more fields, but which and why.
