in the early days I had a json file that had the details in there, but
it was dropped almost a year ago. If you file a requst at
bugs.centos.org and point me at it ( ideally assign the issue to me ), I
can work out the required bits.

What sort of info would you expect to see in this beyond
- filename
- date of last upates
- centos ver
- arch
- file format
- sha256um
