This is a little belated announcement but let it be known that I released a new version of the module metadata library, modulemd-1.1.0, earlier this week!
This version changes the default behavior of the
xmd block a little; it now defaults to being an empty dictionary rather than null. We’re also a lot smarter when it comes to loading the build and runtime dependencies blocks, reading the whole structures rather than assuming they are correct. Last but not least, it now also installs its test suite properly under modulemd.tests. That was a dumb bug. Sorry about that.
