add-remove-software-improvements

Registered by Michael Vogt on 2007-10-16

Improve the add/remove software application so it's desirable as
default. Include user-provided descriptions, feature lists,
screenshots and ratings for software (managed by a webapp?).

  * Initial page should be top-rated apps, or newest apps, etc.
   * scope for improvement
   * webapp design/hosting
   * data cacheing

Whiteboard

Automating PPA key downloading when users add a PPA url.

Have some sort of tagging for applications to make them more searchable in addition to package descriptions. Especially consider the use case of someone searching for the "equivalent of program foo" when the replacement program doesn't refer to foo specifically.

Much of this is planned to be implemented as part of https://blueprints.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+spec/software-library . --mpt
