Extending metainfo.yml?

Sorry for not having being so clear :S
I sent a "maybe clearer" email to kde-devel [1]. The idea is to 
generalize the metainfo.yml to all projects and extend the available 
keys in order to build a api.kde.org with all projects. Please refer to 
this email. According to Martin Gräßlin, I should come with a full 
proposition that works and then say to people "this is what you need to 
put in your libs so that they appear on api.kde.org"

I'll do such a proposition in the upcoming weeks.
