Hi, I am a contributor of openSUSE and working on software.opensuse.org during last few months. openSUSE has a YaST One-Click Install implementation. Users click a link and download a XML file which is automatically opened by YaST software installer. However, this implementation has many limitation:
It is only works for openSUSE.
It is not portable. You need a server to generate these XML files.
It only works with YaST. While many users start to use GNOME Software or KDE Discover as software management tools.
Snap has its snap: URI protocol. Does PackageKit have similar implementation? And does it support additional repository? (like from openSUSE Build Services)
