the existance or not of desktop file can be used as filter to not
include libs/console apps if you don't want them, (maybe others are
searching for a lib and can be useful to include them)

I'm not familiar with the openwrt and Debian(There is a text file with
descriptions of the repo, isn't) it the Package system but if they
have a description field I don't know why it shoudn't be included, the
work will be to match all those sources of infomation and find a good
balance to show attractive/useful information ,

A other idea regarding this is use a filter to show all, or just
one/few distros, and when entering the app description show on what
distribution  is included an in what version.

Yes its no easy and maybe we must start easy with just one package
system (read SHR ;) ) and then move one adding more distros and
finding good ways to merge all this information to this showing room
