BTW: I forgot to mention that we already have a GNUstep way of storing all this 


The idea behind this is the recently mentioned GAPstore.app which would allow 
to show
the same application list as a full app on the GNUstep desktop, filter out 
already installed and notify about updates. Like you know from iOS or Google 

If you think a little further there could be a mode to edit entries locally and 
send them
to the central database for doing announcements of new applications or versions.

All this becomes impossible or at least brain-twisting if there is not a 
central database
but static HTML+JS+CSS pages.

So it completely breaks the philosophy and goals of the software index and 
stops it from
ever becoming something like the macOS app store or Google Play.
