Does "add" mean "package" here? Or are they to be added to some
package? Are the review requests / pull requests to be reviewed
New package is what we are thinking about. I don't have review
request yet, the upstream development currently happens at
and I have a couple more things to flesh out before being ready for review.

Do you mean createrepo_c? createrepo is going away.
Yes. Is it OK to update the change page to fix that?

F30 beta is in exactly 2 weeks. I doubt "agreeing" and implementation
can happen in this timeframe. It should be OK to put in parts of the
implementation, even if things are not complete for this release.
But for "advertising purposes", maybe it's better to bump it to F31,
so that we don't advertise something that is not fully implemented?

A bit more detail here would be useful.
The latest improvements to dnf and libdnf plugin API seems to cover
everything that we need to be able to generate SWID tags locally
after every transaction, as well as pull in SWID tags from repository
metadata, if present.
