it should be rebranding to parabola-appstream-data, also AppStream XML files (appstream.xml, appstream-failed.xml and appstream-icons) should be rebuilt with our unified software metadata database instead of Arch to solve this issue.

the first solution strategy that came to my mind to automate the cleaning of those files was using an XML parser interfacing with the blacklist to prune proprietary nodes. however that's only half a solution.
this is what Arch and Debian use to generate AppStream metadata collections from their repositories: https://github.com/ximion/appstream-generator
why not do the same?
