    The answer is a SPEC file.

      The Linux world really needs some more standardization for user software.
      AppData and AppStream are very useful things in that direction.

        A SPEC file is RPM-specific configuration, usually provided by the distro packager rather than upstream. The AppData file is intended to be part of the upstream source package... something useful whether you're packaging for RPM, DEB, or one of those zero-install type packages.
