Bug#558692: ITP: software-center -- Utility for browsing, installing, and removing applications (Ubuntu Software Center)

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

* Package name    : software-center
  Version         : 1.1~bzr
  Upstream Author : Michael Vogt <mvo@ubuntu.com>
* URL             : https://launchpad.net/software-center
* License         : GPL-3+
  Programming Lang: Python
  Description     : Utility for browsing, installing, and removing applications (Ubuntu Software Center)

 The Ubuntu Software Center lets you browse and install thousands of 
 free applications available for Ubuntu. You can view available 
 applications by category, or search quickly by name or description. 
 You can also examine the applications already installed, and remove
 those you no longer need.
 To install or remove software using the Center, you need administrator
 access on the computer.

I am branching off software-center trunk (UNRELEASED 1.1); and plan to
upload it to unstable tomorrow. It will continue some strings from Ubuntu,
this will be fixed later on.

I plan to add a gnome-app-install transitional package depending on
gnome-codec-install and software-center; as they together provide
the same functionality. After it gets accepted, I would request the
removal of gnome-app-install.

PS. I am not subscribed to debian-devel, so people reading this there
    should CC me and/or the bug report.
