Support Update Repo Generation

Feature state



The Build Service should offer update repos as repository channel. It is unclear right now, how we will carry in the extra update information texts. This should maybe designed together with a new changelog handling.

User benefit:

Especially on openSUSE systems where the update applets only support updating if there is a patches.

It's a pain because then the user will have no idea that there are updates unless they launch Software Manager in YaST (not even update manager!) or they run zypper.

the extra informations for update channels can be stored already in _patchinfo files.

We lack the generation part for it so far.

If we just lack the generation part, I like to switch to Sascha as Developer. He should really know better than me where the current code needs adaption and where to store the data.
