Bug#558690: ITP: aptdaemon -- transaction based package management service

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Julian Andres Klode <jak@debian.org>

* Package name    : aptdaemon
  Version         : 0.10
  Upstream Author : Sebastian Heinlein <devel@glatzor.de>,
                    Michael Vogt <mvo@ubuntu.com>
* URL             : https://launchpad.net/aptdaemon
* License         : GPL-2+
  Programming Lang: Python
  Description     : transaction based package management service

 Aptdaemon allows normal users to perform package management tasks, e.g. 
 refreshing the cache, upgrading the system, installing or removing software 
 Currently it comes with the following main features:
  - Programming language independent D-Bus interface, which allows to
    write clients in several languages
  - Runs only if required (D-Bus activation)
  - Fine grained privilege management using PolicyKit, e.g. allowing all
    desktop user to query for updates without entering a password
  - Support for media changes during installation from DVD/CDROM
  - Support for debconf (Debian's package configuration system)
  - Support for attaching a terminal to the underlying dpkg call

The package itself is based on the Ubuntu one, with some changes:
  - Converted the package to 3.0 (quilt) source format
  - Converted the package from cdbs to debhelper 7
  - Converted debian/copyright to DEP-5 format
  - Rebased against current trunk of aptdaemon

Sebastian, could we get a 0.11 release tomorrow; with the state
of the current trunk and the attached patch for Python 2.5
support? This would be helpful; as I would like to upload
the package tomorrow.
