AppStream metadata for Wireshark package are missing

There is not any appdata.xml/metainfo.xml file available in the Wireshark package. Because of this, Wireshark cannot be found and/or installed using the GNOME Software application or another package manager UI based on AppStream.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open GNOME Software.
2. Type "wireshark".
the package "wireshark" itself is just a metapackage for Wireshark GTK and Wireshark Qt versions. Looking at the last Koji build, I can see appdata.xml in place:

Richard, can you help me with this?
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 27 development cycle.
Changing version to '27'.
