Add AppData file #1149
AppData is a new specification similar to .desktop for package/software metadata. It intends to contain much more metadata then a .desktop file including screenshots, a description, etc. Fedora is quite a large distribution, and they're switching to gnome-software for GUI package management. Having an appdata file will help provide support to something that is trying to get off the ground, and Gnome-Software will provide preference to packages with AppData. As of Fedora 22, an AppData file will be required to show up in Gnome-Software.

Yes, you can put mine there.
Edit: The resolution of the screenshots is incorrect, see http://people.freedesktop.org/~hughsient/appdata/#screenshot-resolution.
Please note that's the suggested resolution, not a required resolution, and I figured that it was worth it to give up a handful of pixels for perfection (I doubt they'll stretch it, it's likely an issue of fitting into the UI, so 2 or 3 pixels won't matter), and just use the images already hosted on minetest.net, since they were almost perfect, and I didn't have to go through the trouble of getting someone to upload new handmade ones. And, to be clear this is not the maintainer of Minetest, this the maintainer of the AppData file. Also, I don't have an issue with maintaining this file, as I have already updated it once in accordance with a new spec, but if you insist...
