META.yml specs
Message ID:
Any takers to write formal specs for META.yml?

And could we mandate that the META.yml files themselves declare which
version of the spec they implement?

I just counted which keywords are already in use:

  abstract: 48
  author: 38
  build_requires: 218
  conflicts: 199
  distribution: 2
  distribution_type: 444
  dynamic_config: 32
  generated_by: 440
  installdirs: 203
  license: 230
  module_name: 3
  name: 446
  private: 44
  provides: 146
  recommends: 209
  requires: 424
  version: 446
  version_from: 197

Only "name" and "version" are present in all META.yml files.
"provides" seems neglected by most META.yml writers.
