RFM Fusion (http://rpmfusion.org) free and non-free repositories will soon include appstream data packages thanks to the work from Ankur Sinha (https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/User:Ankursinha), a Fedora Project contributor. The benefit will be the ability to use Gnome Software (https://wiki.gnome.org/Apps/Software), to install graphical user interface applications like KDEnlive (https://kdenlive.org/).

This is great.
Does this also mean that the automatic search will now actually find the stuff it is looking for (like when some codec is missing)?

It depends of applications. I installed VLC via Gnome Software and gstreamers codecs were automatically added. Totem will ask for additional codecs like mp4 when needed.
Appstream data effort is worth. Remind me the Sugar package method used on XO laptop.

VLC has its own codecs.
For totem and the automatically codec installation: I think I was a bit confused because app data for Gnome-Software shouldn't have anything to do with that (besides the ability to install addons when installing stuff through it I guess).
