Marco, thanks for your answer.
I think it could be very useful for many clients building on top of QGIS
Server to have such informations:
My quick proposal is to add:
* layer type
* geometry type
* source geometry SRID
* primary key
* layer transparency
* layers group membership
and for Project:
* project title
* selection color
* background colors
* project scales
* canvas units
Do you think it is a good idea to add this informations to that
GetCapabilities-like XML response ?
